Mental health and substance abuse services

Don’t hesitate to seek help!

A large part of mental health and substance abuse services is produced in a centralised manner, i.e. outside the health centres. In many municipalities, there are community mental health centres that provide help as well. Health centres are also prepared to provide assistance.

The most important thing is that you contact somebody when you need support in matters related to mental health or substance abuse. Phone the community mental health centre in your own municipality or the A-Clinic Foundation operating in the area – the main thing is that you are not alone with your problem!
