We are interested in neuroscience research, psychoeducation and counseling, through the cooperation of scientists of the fields of psychology, psychiatry,neurology, biology, psychopharmacology, genetics, art, law and advanced technology.


We know that both legal and illegal psychoactive drugs demand caution, since they affect brain function, producing alterations in sensation, perception, mood,consciousness, cognition, and behavior.


We believe that product labelling is the main component of a comprehensive public health strategy, that aims to reduce, both legal and illegal, psychoactive substances-related harm.


We create studies, campaigns, seminars, webinars and conferences, supporting the idea of product labelling for all, legal or illegal, psychoactive substances.


We propose labelling as a unique opportunity for governments to disseminate health promotion messages at the points of sale and consumption.


We demand a unique warning sign on every product, indicating the presence of any psychoactive substance, as well as the name of this substance.

He obtained the M.Sc. in Neuroscience at the Institute of Psychiatry, London, and the Ph.D. at the Medical School of Athens. He has conducted several studies, and has written a number of articles and books in psychopathology and in prevention strategies. He is the founder of the NPO “Obrela – Neuroscience & Mental Health” (www.obrela.gr), the editor of the Journal “Dialogues in Clinical Neuroscience & Mental Health” (www.obrela-journal.gr), and the director of the project “I care for my brain” (www.icareformybrain.org).

Vote for labeling

In “Obrela” highly regarded researchers from the fields of neuroscience and humanities contribute to the understanding and promotion of the idea of “brain care”. Brain health is not enough for mental health, but it is definitely a prerequisite for it. The further understanding of brain function and brain disorders requires the collaboration of multiple scientific professions from the fields of neurology, psychiatry, psychology, biology, pharmacology, genetics, philosophy, advanced technology, and others.

We believe that valid information on health issues, as well as the provision of certified health services, is a fundamental right of every citizen. We therefore invite you to contribute with your suggestions, active participation and constructive evaluation, in our multidisciplinary mission and its success.
