Services for the whole family

We provide children, young people and families wide-ranging services in one place. From comprehensive assessment to intensive rehabilitation and treatment. By accentuating our clients’ own resourcefulness and identifying special needs we are able to construct treatment paths. Our multiprofessional activity facilitates flexible work in line with clients’ needs.

Aims

  • Fundamental change in the situation of a child and family
  • Strengthening the functional capacity, developing the social skills, and school attendance of children and young people
  • Strengthening the cohesiveness of family relations and the parents’ resources

Children and young people keep up school attendance with the help of strong school collaboration and hospital school education.

Child and family services are run in Helsinki.
