Association for Mental Health in Tampere
Association for Mental Health in Tampere Region is a regional body of the Finnish Association for Mental Health (FAMH). Our main goal is to improve mental wellbeing in the local community. You are welcome to join us in this work, as a voluntary support worker or in other tasks related to promotion of mental health.
You can reach us through Osviitta crisis center – whether you wish to help, or whether you need help for yourself.
Osviitta Crisis Center
Osviitta is a place where anyone in need of support can come. We have trained volunteers and staff who will listen to you and support you with difficult situations in life, for example:
- marital or family problems
- worries and stress in everyday life
- a traumatic experience
Your visit is confidential and free of charge. If you wish, you can remain anonymous. You can come to Osviitta at any time during the opening hours, but since not all our staff and volunteers speak English, you may need to book an appointment. Even then, the wait is short and you do not have to give out any personal contact information.
