Places to seek help

Support centers

The support centers are the low-threshold services that welcome everyone. No professional referral is needed to get in contact with them. In these support centers you can meet supervisors who are familiar with the subject and will give you advice on how to proceed further.

Family doctor

Your family doctor is a good place to start a conversation and be referred to a psychologist, if necessary. It is important that you tell your doctor about what you’re struggling with.


Report assaults to the police. They will decide whether the case should be investigated or if it is obsolete. If you’re a victim to rape, report to the police and they will help you to an abuse center. You can also tip the police by phone if you’re concerned about abuse.


DPS offers treatment by psychologists and therapists, depending on your need. You will need a doctors referral to get help from the public assistance.


I knew something was wrong, but I couldn’t figure it out. It took me 30 years before I realized. I had a job within the treatmentsector, it was discussed at a meeting about sexual abuse against a boy. Suddenly the pieces connected, I’ve been experienced that too! Then and there the my streatment got started.

I’ve probably know about all the abuse when I was growin up, but it was at age 37, when I became a father to a lovely boy, that the thoughts began to bother me. Becoming a father triggered my memories and after my dear mother finally got some peace from many years of battling sickness and psychological hell, it was time to take a hold on my own problems I knew were present, but held them hidden from the world.

I was hoping it was the 40-year old crisis. Divorced, new co-habitant, not functioning at work, growing anxiety, bad sexlife; it would probably be over. Medication didn’t help, not even the alternative treatments my partner was suggesting. A random afternoon, when chatting with a good and wise friend, the first damned memories surfaced. So very sudden. It beat the breath out of me, but finally I had an explanation. I could start to take back control.
