How do I know if I’m pregnant? Is this the right size? With 40 counsellors and 1500 unique questions annually, a web based counselling clinic breaks taboos in Estonia.
“I struggle with panic attacks, and here I am surrounded by medical staff that knows how to act. I need to get back on track.” These are the words of 14-year-old Kathriin, one of the patients at the new Children’s mental health centre in Estonia.
Many children in Europe are at risk of poverty and social exclusion. Improving their well-being and protecting their rights is a priority of the EEA and Norway Grants.
With support through the Norway Grants, the new Children’s Mental Health Centre recently opened its doors in Tallinn. The centre will be integral for providing more comprehensive services to children and youth suffering from mental health problems.
Estonia is reaching young people with mental-health issues through dedicated websites and smartphone apps. The Peaasi and AppsTerv projects, funded by Norway Grants, help mental-health professionals to reach a wider audience.
