Mental health care

Helsinki residents are provided mental health care services at their local health station. Health stations help in emergencies and treat mild and medium-level mental disorders.

Mental health care at health stations

As necessary, a customer can be referred by a health station doctor to a psychiatric outpatient clinic. In case of a psychiatric emergency, a customer or the customer’s family or loved ones can contact the nearest psychiatric outpatient clinic directly.
