Palkansaajien hyvinvointi ja terveys PHT

Palkansaajien hyvinvointi ja terveys PHT organises well-being courses for adults and families with children.

The family courses are meant for families with preschool-aged or school-aged children. The purpose is to help families exercise more and adopt healthy habits in their daily life. The aim is to find the joy of exercise by trying out different kinds of sport and spending time together.

On the adult courses, participants seek methods for coming to terms with themselves. They are also supported in making a lifestyle renovation. The courses enable you to learn about new forms of exercise, get information on nutrition, and take part in guided exercise in a nature-near environment.
Courses for adults usually last one week. The courses have been divided into three short periods of contact studies.

The study periods are arranged around Finland. PHT promotes health and well-being with support from Veikkaus.

Learn more about the well-being courses (page in Finnish). To apply, go to PHT’s website (in Finnish) and use the electronic form.

PHT is in charge of selecting the participants and organising the study periods. Applying and being selected don’t require trade union membership. Those who have been selected will be notified by PHT in writing.
