The Registered Association of Support of Mental Health Rehabilitation supports and develops social psychiatric rehabilitation work in Jyväskylä. The association complements public mental health services when customer oriented, experimental and cross-organizational functional rehabilitation supporting solutions are needed.

In 1984 the association founded a psychiatric day centre to Vaasankatu 3, to the city of Jyväskylä. This activity stabilized as a part of rehabilitators’ daily life and is included nowadays to Jyväskylä’s adult psychiatry’s rehabilitation activity.

In 1999 the association founded the Fountain House modelled Suvimäen Klubitalo for mental health rehabilitators to Taulumäki in Jyväskylä. Clubhouse offers to its members comprehensive rehabilitation which focal point is every member’s strengths recognizing work activity. Employment opportunities are also searched for members in the Clubhouse.

The Registered Association of Support of Mental Health Rehabilitation is meant for all those people and organizations who are interested of social psychiatric rehabilitation and developing rehabilitation alternatives.

The association gets the funds for its action from Ray – slot machine enterprise (Ray is now in 2017 a part of Finland’s largest betting enterprise Veikkaus and therefore the name of Ray – slot machine enterprise is ceased to exist), Central Finland’s health care district and a municipality of Muurame but also needs donations and other concrete support.

Through the association you can have an influence!
