Mindhelper.dk launched in September 2016 and is today Denmark’s most extensive website for youths about mental health. The project is rooted in The Five Regions of Denmark: Capital Region of Denmark, Central Denmark Region, Region Zealand, Region of Southern Denmark and The North Denmark Region.
The main purposes of Mindhelper
Mindhelper exists to prevent the poor development of youths’ mental well-being in Denmark.
We have two primary purposes at Mindhelper: First, we want to help youths who are having a hard time and do it early before their problems become too extensive. Secondly, we want to strengthen the general mental health in Denmark among youths.
