Week Tegen Racisme: Whose Mental Health?

- Pakhuis de Zwijger

The Netherlands, like many European countries, has embraced mental healthcare as an important subject by contributing to an increase of literature and publication of books regarding managing mental health issues. Unfortunately the Netherlands, like other European countries, also suffer from institutional racism. What is the importance of having awareness of cultural difference within mental health care? And to what extent is it difficult to find a psychologist who is black or ‘of color’ within dutch hospitals or medical institutions? Join us for presentations and panel conversations on mental health care in the Netherlands.
