Excellent news in the world of mental health! MIITTI has been granted permanent STEA funding

We’re thrilled to announce that we will be continuing to organize wonderful events at MIITTI, aimed at promoting and boosting mental well-being, elevating mood, and enhancing the ability to tackle everyday challenges, as well as breaking down cross-cultural prejudice.

After three years of project funding, we’re delighted to share that The Funding Centre for Social Welfare and Health Organizations (STEA) has awarded us permanent funding. This solidifies our ability to significantly enhance mental well-being through a diverse range of activities for newcomers and natives in Helsinki and the capital area.

The diverse range of activities provided by Pro Lapinlahti’s MIITTI caters to creativity, physical condition, and social engagement, and aims to uplift participants’ moods and help them develop effective coping mechanisms to navigate the challenges of daily life more successfully. In essence, MIITTI’s efforts go beyond mere recreation; they are aimed at fostering holistic wellness and resilience among individuals while connecting people across cultures.

We are dedicated to reducing loneliness and fostering a sense of community. Through our initiatives, individuals are finding connections and building friendships, ultimately enriching their lives and contributing to a more inclusive society.

So, whether you’ve recently arrived in Finland, have been here for some time, or have always called this place home, we extend a warm invitation for you to join our activities.

Through MIITTI’s activities run by volunteers, you can participate in free mental health courses and weekly meditation and mindfulness sessions, engage in physical activities such as yoga, volleyball, badminton, and running events. You can also take part in art workshops and exhibitions, find peer support groups, or simply relax at our social events such as our long-running “Friends Without Borders” meetups and more.

A warm welcome to a new, rejuvenated, and happier you!

Check out our activities on our social media or on Meetup! We are looking forward to seeing you!
