Come and Join a Protest for the Need to Increase the Resources of FSHS Mental Health Services on 13.4.2022 at 3 pm!

Tue 05 Apr 2022 12:47:00 PM EEST

Students’ mental health crisis needs reaction; thus we queue for better healthcare services. ISYY will take part in the demonstration organised by the Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä (JYY) on 13th of April 2022. According to the themes of the Students’ Mental Health Day on 13 April, we demand that the government budgets more funding to the mental health services of FSHS. The demonstration will be held in the townsquare of Kuopio and Joensuu at 3 pm.

The mental health issues of students have been on the rise but the resources of student healthcare have not. Also, resources have not increased in line with an increasing number of students. Therefore, we are forced to react and want to demonstrate in a form of a queue how long one must wait to get access to the student healthcare services. The demonstration is not in opposition of FSHS in any way, rather it is meant to raise awareness for the lack of FSHS resources budgeted by the government.

So come along, wear your student overalls if you have them and if you wish, take a demonstration sign with you. Let’s show together that students need more healthcare resources! The best demonstration sign will be rewarded!


  • What? ISYY’s demonstration on increasing the resources of FSHS’s mental health services.
