If you have
mental health problems you can get support from your GP by making an appointment with them. They can provide treatment or refer you to other mental
health professionals, depending on the nature of your problems and their
complexity. Please check AON Complete+ for insurance coverage information.
On the other
hand, there are some other institutions which offer free mental health
services and support through chats and phone calls.

mainly by the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport. Phone numbers
are 113 and 0800 – 0113. The organization employs psychologists and
psychiatrists and a large group of fully trained volunteers who
provide round-the-clock confidential support through chats and phone
calls, also in English.
The Listen Line: The organization has a call centre 24 hours a day, all year round. The
telephone support service has existed for more than 60 years and the number is 088 0767 000. Also the chat service is
