ForFrøya: Preventive mental health services for young adults in Frøya municipality

Frøya municipality and the Øya Foundation have established a "Preventive Team" with the aim of improving the preventive mental health services aimed at the young population in the municipality. The municipality wants to find good measures and working methods for the preventive team. For the systematic collection of data, documentation and analyses, health service researchers from SINTEF are engaged to provide knowledge-based input along the way.
