Disseminating the message on mental health

The aim of MIELI is to advance the mental health literacy of people through education. By improving the mental health literacy of people, we improve people's capacity to understand oneself, one’s surroundings, resources and risk factors, to take care of  their own well-being and cope with day-to-day problems, to support other people and to seek for professional help if needed.

Each year, MIELI organises PR campaigns on mental health. In addition, we participate in approximately 30 events around Finland, including fairs, conferences and seminars.

MIELI has systematically extended its information network. MIELI website at mieli.fi provides information on assistance with crisis or problem situations.

MIELI publishes an annual Newsletter in English, available online as pdf-versions:

MIELI publishes Perheterapia (Family Therapy), a training publication on psychotherapy skills.

In addition, MIELI publishes professional literature offering new and in depth information on mental health. A wider audience is targeted with books and guides providing information on and support for life management and coping. MIELI productions is a separate company for publication activities in order to produce and publish a variety of guides, booklets, brochures and audio-visual material.
