Student health care

In Helsinki, student health care services are primarily available within educational institutions. You can access the services of a school nurse through your educational institution.

In addition to the services provided by the nurses in educational institutions, our Centralised Unit of Student Health Care offers specialised services for sexual health matters, mental health support, and conducts conscription health examinations.

Our primary focus in student health care is to promote the health and study capacity of students, as well as monitor the health conditions within the study environment. These services are specifically intended for students attending upper secondary schools and vocational schools located in Helsinki.

How to contact us

The best way to reach the nurse at your educational institution is by phone. Additionally, you can submit a contact request through various channels such as Wilma, email or Maisa.
