The Finnish Association for Mental Health provides help and support for foreigners

The SOS Crisis Center helps adult foreigners and their family members living in Finland in different crises of life, through conversational help.

A client can tell about his/her own life situation in his/her mother tongue in English, Finnish or Swedish, or with the help of an interpreter.

The principle of the center is to give help as soon and flexibly as possible. Help can also given to an anonymous person.  Services are cost-free for the client. It is not necessary to have a referral to the center, but it is important to make an appointment beforehand.
