PG - 292-300 AB - INTRODUCTION: Improving primary care services for mental health and substance abuse problems was one of the major goals of the Finnish national plan for mental health and substance abuse work. METHODS: The study data are drawn from the Regional Health and Well-being Study samples. Participants reported their health service use. RESULTS: Women and young adults used more mental health services than did men and older citizens. However, a significant proportion of those with mental health problems had not used any health services. CONCLUSIONS: More attention should be paid on reducing the stigma associated to mental health and substance abuse problems both within the health care system and the society.
