Celebrating Anastasia Rush
I am writing on behalf of UK EAPA to express our deep sadness at the passing of our colleague Anastasia Rush of Hellas EAP in Greece.
Anastasia was one of the great figures of our industry and a true pioneer who brought EAP to Greece and whose drive and passion for mental health helped advance the development of the industry across Europe. As well as being a clinician she was a formidable businesswoman and a real force to be reckoned with. Those of us who encountered Anastasia, often during one of the European or U.S. conferences, will have fond memories of great times spent in the company of an indomitable and inspirational character. The positive impact that EAP continues to have on thousands of lives in Greece and beyond is a tribute to her personal philosophy and will serve as a fitting legacy.
Our thoughts are with Anastasia’s friends, family and colleagues at this time.
