Our peer support groups are held weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly for your convenience. We currently offer four types of groups in two meeting modes: offline and online. Each group has a facilitator/leader who is there to support you and ensure that the group is going well. Our Peer Support groups are currently held in English in the Uusimaa region. If there is the need for groups to be held in another language we can offer this as well. All of the groups are anonymous and we do not ask for personal information. Participants mutually agree to keep the group discussions private, and keep the groups respectfully and inclusive.
The four types of groups we offer are:
- Psychological Support
- Substance Abuse/Addiction Support
- Support Group for the loved ones of an Addict
- Support Group for the loved ones of a Mentally Ill person
Our Support Groups are a great way to not only make friends in Finland, but to gain a valuable support network of people who can relate to you, and support you in times of need.
We are a safe space for everyone, no matter their background or who they are. We feel that everyone deserves the chance to succeed, and to flourish in life.
At present, our second round of peer-support groups is taking place. Therefore, sign-up for this activity is not possible at the moment. After the Summer, we will open the sign-up again and organize another round of peer-support groups.
