General

EHYT Finnish Association for Substance Abuse Prevention works throughout Finland to promote healthy lifestyles and brings together the key organisations in the sector. We promote high-quality and experience and evidence-based discourse on substance abuse. We work with people of all ages from children and young people to working age people and the elderly.

We are an NGO and expert organisation that acts as a link between the different sector stakeholders, between the experts and general public and between research and practice. We observe everyday lives and everyday phenomena, gathering evidence on silent signals that may anticipate future change, and utilise that evidence in all our lobbying and influencing work and in the further development of our own activities.

At EHYT, the expertise of our staff and the commitment shown by our volunteers combine to create an active and effective organisation, well-placed to react rapidly to changes in our operating environment and to undertake long-term development work.
