Counselling and crisis help for young people

Crisis Services for Youth provides free and short-term counselling for young people, aged from 12–29. We also offer counselling in Finnish and Swedish.

Get in touch with Crisis Services for Youth if something is worrying you and you’d like to talk about it with someone in confidence, either alone or together with your partner. You don’t need any referral note or diagnosis, you don’t need to live in Helsinki and, if you want, you can talk anonymously. You can speak to our professional helpers about anything that is important to you, any life crisis, perhaps concerns about your own health or that of someone near to you, anything at all. The aim of appointments with a crisis worker is to help you to feel better, to keep you on the right track. We aim to prevent anyone from feeling alone when they’re facing a difficult situation.

During our first contact we will map your situation and what you hope to get from being able to talk to someone about it. After the first contact, which will be by phone, you can have up to five conversations with a crisis worker. Together, we will set a goal for our conversations, based on where you are and what you would like to achieve. If the help we can provide is not enough, we can talk about what other sorts of service would be most beneficial for you and what you might want to do next.

Book your phone appointment

Book your phone appointment with a crisis worker in our web-based calendar via the link below. A crisis worker will phone you.

Book an appointment

Choose the service you are looking for and a time slot that works for you and fill in your contact details. Use only your first name to book your appointment. You will receive a confirmation message once you have successfully booked your appointment. If the calendar does not open, please refresh the web page and try again.

If your schedule has changed, please cancel your appointment 24 hours beforehand using the link in your confirmation message. That will give another young person a chance to use the time slot you don’t need.

NB! If you have a care contact for mental health issues, please contact that service or your contact person primarily. The service provided by Crisis Services for Youth is not a treatment for illness. In acute crisis situations, please contact the usual on-call services. In an emergency, always ring 112.
