Psychiatric housing rehabilitation

Housing rehabilitation offers supported guidance for the management of a psychiatric illness and the skills required for independent living.

The rehabilitation homes prepare their residents to cope with the symptoms of their illness, to care for their health, and to cope with everyday life and social interaction.

The rehabilitation is based on a treatment and rehabilitation plan compiled in co-operation, the weekly programme and various groups.

The nursing staff are usually present from 8.00-20.00 on weekdays and from 9.00-17.00 at weekends. Additionally, the residents are provided with the services of a doctor, a social worker and a functional therapist.


Age: over 18.
The service is intended for residents of Helsinki.

Patients need a referral for the housing rehabilitation. The staff will interview the potential residents, and the SAS (placement and evaluation) working group will select the residents.
The service is subject to a fee.
The housing rehabilitation is a 24-hour service.
