The Culture House Kajo in Mikkeli (Finland) offers a safe place to explore a vide array of culture-related activities in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.

The aim is to reach young adults, between 18- to 35-year-old, that are living in Mikkeli area and face challenges in their everyday life due to their mental health. All the activities organized by the Culture House are completely free of charge. 

The focus is in doing something culture-related, interesting and fun, together with a peer group that consists of other young adults in a similar life situation. Many different groups take place at Kajo every week and the participants can take part in one or more groups that they’re interested in. Each group is led by a peer leader, a participant that has taken part to the peer leader training organized by the Culture House Kajo. All the groups are functional and based on structured peer support. The staff members work as back-up for the groups.

Kajo offers possibilities to learn new things, gives natural tools for life management, supports the development of social skills and improves the ability to work and function. Our main priority is to offer an open and safe atmosphere that supports creativity for the participants.
