Whether you are a student or a parent, please contact student welfare services if you are worried about something. Often it helps just to talk about your concerns with someone.

The City of Espoo’s student welfare services are available remotely to help you under exceptional circumstances.

Pupil and student welfare services

All pupils and students can still use the City of Espoo’s student welfare services and book an appointment with a school welfare officer, a psychologist or a therapist. We will also help you find other services if you need them.

Your appointments with us will be arranged as one-on-one meetings, by phone or through a remote communication system. You will need to book an appointment in advance.

We are following the guidelines of the Finnish Government and the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) to ensure safe meetings. Do not come to a meeting if you are ill.

This is an exceptional situation, and we want to let you know that you are not alone.
