For you who studies at Hanken in Helsinki, your nearest healthcare stations are at Tölögatan 37 A in Helsinki or at Otnässvängen 12 in Espoo.
FSHS provides general, oral and mental health services for students. You can book an appointment by calling the healthcare station, please find out more about the numbers here: http://www.yths.fi/en/contact_details/units/helsinki
