Association for Mental Health in Forssa Region – Briefly
Association for Mental Health in Forssa Region is a regional body of the Finnish Association for Mental Health, MIELI Suomen Mielenterveys. We operate within Forssa, Tammela, Jokioinen, Ypäjä, Humppila and Urjala municipalities. Our main goal is to improve the mental well being in the local community.
According to WHO mental health is ”Mental health is a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”
Mental Health as a skill to adapt to change and cope with adversity is resilien. Every single one of us consumes the mental health and that is why it is important to take care of it and give a possibility to recharge it. And that’s when we enter the scene…
