Culture house Marilyn in Kajaani offers culture-related groups for young adults (18-35 years) that have challenges in life. Functional peer groups are planned and led by Peer Leaders that have undergone our Peer Leader Training.
Guided functional peer support is based on the conception of rehabilitation in which the focus is on the person’s assets and interests instead of on sickness. Instead of discussion, guided functional peer support focuses on functionality, communality and a sense of peer support.
In guided functional peer support, volunteers are trained to direct functional groups while focusing on the strengths and interests of the participants. Through guided functional peer support, we aim to eliminate loneliness and restart the rehabilitative effects of learning.
Taking part in our group activities is no cost without any membership fees.
Culture house Marilyn is open every monday to thursday at 9-15 o’clock. Our address is: Asemakatu 2, 87100 Kajaani.
