The free OSF Psychology and Psychiatry service.

With its free Psychology and Psychiatry service, OSF responds to one of the most delicate needs of fragile and vulnerable members of the population. Since the service was introduced OSF has looked after the psychological wellbeing of people using different therapeutic approaches, developing treatment courses geared to assessing and taking care of those that request assistance.

The professionals that operate the service periodically participate in internal training and supervision meetings with the aim of sharing the technical and clinical expertise necessary to deal with the emerging complexities generated by constant geopolitical changes and the serious healthcare and social situations that currently exist.

Presently the service offers both in-person and online consultancy.

Thanks to its volunteers, the service offers child psychological, psychiatric and neuropsychiatric evaluation activities and psychotherapy treatments for adults, adolescents and minors from all over the world.

Beginning with the initial interview in the Psychology Clinic (always open with no appointment necessary), OSF welcomes people in serious states of psychosocial marginalisation, victims of intentional violence and trafficking, asylum seekers, vulnerable people and families in difficulty, reconstructing their personal, family and migratory background in specific settings, embracing their vulnerabilities, bringing out their individual resources and strengthening their resilience, key elements for embarking on a course of treatment (individual, couples, family or group).
