Outpatient psychiatric services for adults
Outpatient treatment in adult psychiatry focuses on the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of the need for psychiatric treatment of people over 18 years of age.
The goal of outpatient psychiatry is to strengthen the patients’ mental health. Our services are confidential, free of charge, voluntary, and no referral is required. Multiprofessional working groups are responsible for psychiatric assessment, treatment and rehabilitation. The working groups’ service locations are in Kokkola, Kaustinen, Perho, Kannus, Toholampi, Kälviä, Lohtaja and Ullava.
You can seek out mental health services within the primary health care services by calling the adult psychiatry outpatient services’ helpline for advice and assessment. You can seek out psychiatric specialized health care with a doctor’s referral.
In urgent situations, contact your local health centre, the psychiatry hotline or the joint emergency services.
