Finding your own way

At Workshop Komppis you can practice your social skills and how to manage your everyday life in group and individual coaching. We also offer different activities to support and strengthen your wellbeing. Every working aged (ages 18–65) person who has faced challenges with their mental health are welcome to Komppis.

In Komppis your rehabilitation is supported by concrete work assignments, creative activities and Green Care ‑methods. In addition, we organize lectures given by experts and experts by experience. The Workshop operates in two locations: music workshop in “Kasarmialue” and other workshop activities in “Kauppapuistikko”.

You won’t be compensated by taking part in our activities. Instead, you will gain social capital, direction in your life and new skills. Komppis is a safe community where you can train togetherness and to manage independently in everyday life at your own pace.

The social rehabilitation at Komppis means learning and strengthening your interpersonal skills, taking responsibility and gaining confidence through togetherness and different activities. The goal is to help you move forward to studies or working life.

Komppis offers you:

  • flexibility
