Who can you tell your story to and who can help you? There are several organisations that you can turn to for help. There are also telephone lines that you can call at any time of the day to tell your story.

If you have serious complaints about depression or other psychological problems, contact your own doctor immediately. This can help you to get in touch with the right counsellor. For example, with a referral to mental health care (GGZ).
