Season’s Greetings & Happy New Year 2022!

21.12.2021

This Christmas we have made a donation to MIELI Mental Health Finland’s work for children and young people. MIELI Mental Health Finland is an organisation whose mission is to promote mental health, provide crisis support and prevent mental health issues. MIELI Mental Health Finland wants to build a society in which people can talk about mental health safely and without stigma.

MIELI is the world’s oldest non-governmental organisation dedicated to mental health and has helped people living in Finland through their life crises for over 120 years. The organisation operates at a national level through 54 local member associations and its operations are run by almost 150 professionals and over 3,000 volunteers.
