Are you unsure about how to access mental health support in the Netherlands? Are you overwhelmed by the different pathways to get to whatever you may need? Living in a different country can be challenging enough, let alone trying to figure out how to get support in a different system! We are hosting a workshop that aims to give you a better understanding of the options available to you. In this workshop, we will discuss topics such as approaching your GP to discuss mental health, insurance cover, researching therapists and how to prepare for your sessions. The workshop will consist of a presentation, some group activities and a break for refreshments halfway through.
The support group is organised by Queer Rotterdam and led by Katy (she/her). I have a Master’s degree in Psychology and am interested in all things mental health. My aim is to help facilitate sharing within the community so that we don’t have to navigate the system alone.
(This workshop is inspired by one held by Nur Aydin in collaboration with Klauw)
