Nyyti News 5/2022
Nyyti ry declared a happy student, Homo studiensis, endangered on May Day, and launched a fundraising campaign to protect it.
The number of students in need of mental health care has risen alarmingly and services are congested. Now is the time to reverse the trend and work to strengthen the mental health of every student and prevent problems from getting worse.
We invite everyone to the Homo studiens conservation work and to make it possible to provide students with information, support - especially peer support - for the challenges of studying and coping.
“This affects us all, including businesses. Students will be the employers, superiors, co-workers, friends, mothers and fathers, decision-makers, members of society of the future, and now they need help. We have built many functional individual and group services, the continuity of which can be supported by donating according to your own abilities. It is important that the plight of students is made visible and that is why it is also worth sharing information and participating in the discussion, ”says Minna Savolainen, Executive Director of Nyyti ry.
