The Seri Support Center at Women's Hospital is a support unit for people over 16 years of age, regardless of gender, who have experienced sexual violence. We offer a low-threshold service that you can seek out yourself, with relatives or under the guidance of a public authority within a month of your traumatic experience.

If more than a month has passed from the event, you can seek help from the health center in your area, a family guidance center, a municipal sexual counsellor, or through various organizations. Filing a report on the offence is not a condition for treatment, although we encourage it. The abbreviation of the Seri Support Center comes from the Finnish words for sexual offence (seksuaalirikos).

The full services of our support center are provided on weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., but we answer the emergency service phone calls and take care of urgent matters 24 hours a day, also on weekends. Children under the age of 16 will be treated at the emergency department of the New Children's Hospital.
