Workshop Komppis – Social Rehabilitation for Adults

Finding Your Own Way


At Workshop Komppis you can practice your social skills and how to manage your everyday life in group and individual coaching. We also offer different activities to support and strengthen your wellbeing. Every working aged (ages 18–65) person living in Vaasa who has faced challenges with their mental health are welcome to Komppis. In Komppis your rehabilitation is supported by concrete work assignments, creative activities and Green Care ‑methods. In addition we organize lectures given by experts and experts by experience. The Workshop operates in two locations: music workshop in Kasarmialue and other workshop activities in Kirkkopuistikko.


Taking part in our activities does not cost any money. Instead of money you gain social capital, direction in your life and new skills. Komppis is a safe community where you can train togetherness and how to manage independently in everyday life at your own pace. The social rehabilitation at Komppis means learning and strengthening your interpersonal skills, taking responsibility and gaining confidence through togetherness and different activities. The goal is to help you move forward to studies or working life.
