PHT wellbeing courses

PHT (Palkansaajien hyvinvointi ja terveys) is a health-promoting organisation that organises supported 1st step wellbeing courses for working-age adults and families with children.

Wellbeing courses for adults

Lasting change courses give you the chance to stop and assess your own wellbeing and coping. In the courses you review your own practices and habits around exercise, diet and lifestyle using a proven psychological procedure. You can also try out new forms of exercise with guidance and get information on nutrition, peer support and time for rest.

The course includes three on-site sessions (3 + 2 + 2 days) to promote implementing changes in everyday life. All wage earners, unemployed and self-employed persons can apply for the courses.

The courses suit people of working age who:

  • feel dissatisfied with their wellbeing
  • would like support in reviewing their everyday life and habits
  • would like support controlling their weight
  • suffer from exhaustion
  • have tried and to make changes to their habits, but without success

Family wellbeing courses

Wellbeing courses for families with children help families to review their own everyday life and find ways to support the wellbeing of all family members. On the courses you experience different types of exercise and try out sports, get tips and ideas for everyday life, wellbeing and lifestyle habits and time for rest and being together.

You pay a modest contribution that includes instruction, a comprehensive programme and full-board family accommodation.

Families with children of playground and school age can apply for the courses.

The courses are suitable for families with children who would like:

  • ideas for increasing physical exercise
  • tips for diet and children’s meals
  • tools for managing screen time and increasing family activities
  • support with managing weight
