You do not need a referral or a diagnosed mental-health problem to make an appointment with a psychiatric nurse; it is enough that you feel that you need help. You can also bring a relative or friend to the appointment.
Psychiatric nurses have appointments at Korso health center (Naalipolku 6, Gate A, 1st floor), Martinlaakso health center (Laajaniityntie 3, 6th floor), and Tikkurila health center (Kielotie 11, Gate A, 3rd floor)

- by phone, tel. 09 839 34057, Mon-Fri at 12:00-13:00.
What will happen at the appointment?

A psychiatric nurse is not the same as a depression nurse specialist. In order to make an appointment with a depression nurse specialist, you need a referral from your own health center.
In Vantaa, you can also get online therapy to treat various mental-health problems. Studies have proven that online therapy is an effective form of treatment. A doctor will assess your need for online therapy and, when required, give you a referral. For more information, ask your doctor or depression nurse specialist.
