Nyyti ry

Nyyti ry is a national Finnish non-profit organisation founded in 1984. Our operations are supported with proceeds from Veikkaus.

The purpose of our operations is to support students’ mental health and ability to study. We aim to improve students’ study skills and ability to cope with everyday life as well as related peer activities. Moreover, we aim to enhance the skills of people in charge of mental health promotion and problem prevention among students and in student communities.

Our operations are guided by our values of communality, openness and student wellbeing. The key principles governing all our work are equality, inclusivity and partnership.

Nyyti has seven member organisations. The general meeting is the highest decision-making organ. The Nyyti Board of Directors is responsible for strategic leadership according to the decisions of the general meeting. The executive director of the board serves as staff supervisor.

Our target group

Students form the direct target group of our activities. The content of most of the action directed to students is intended for university students and young adults. Some of our activities are also well suited for students in general and vocational upper secondary schools.

Another target group comprises student communities and professionals working with students, with whom we aim to enhance students’ mental health. Our operations are also directed to opinion leaders, including decision-makers, experts and the media. We wish to engage them in promoting student wellbeing and affecting the related interplay of factors.
