In issues relating to mental health please contact, in the first instance, the health centre physician of your own housing district. The doctor then refers
you, if necessary, for further care. In addition, matters relating to
mental health and a possible need for
further care can also be discussed with other employees of the
Department of Social Services and Health Care, for example at a
maternity clinic or child welfare clinic or with a school nurse.
