I work as a school psychologist and I’m a member of the city council and the social services and health care committee in Helsinki. I’m standing for election in the municipal elections 2017. These are my political goals:
Fair schools preparing students equally for life
Schools should be safe spaces that prepare children for adult life. We should give children and young people an equal chance for education regardless of their background, home language, health, gender or their ability to learn.
Appropriate and timely mental health support
There should be sufficient mental health services and the access to them should be easy and quick. The societal position of persons with mental health problems should be strengthened.
Change of direction in the social and health reform
The goal of the social and health reform should be equal, good quality services that are easily available. Social and health services should in the future, too, be produced by the public sector.
No discrimination against LGBTQ
City services should treat people equally despite their gender, sexual orientation or type of family.
Responsibility towards environment and city nature
The environmental effects of decisions have to be taken into account. The forests that are important to the people of Helsinki must be preserved.
