How can WegwijsGGZ help me?
It is not always easy to find your way to help if you have mental health concerns. This may be because of the nature of your concerns, or because it can be difficult to get an overview of which help suits you the best. At WegwijsGGZ, we support you by listening to your situation and giving tailored advice. We can also help you find a health professional suited to your needs. Hence we do not offer treatments ourselves. We work with a network of health-psychologists, psychotherapists and psychiatrists who have years of experience and expertise and are happy to support you in giving treatment advice. Below you will find an overview of our services:

A consult with an expert

Who are we?
Noor Cornelissen and Hieke Bos have joined forces to establish WegwijsGGZ. Both have their own motivation:
Noor (left) experienced a long, hard search for help for her mentally ill mother. She didn’t know where to turn for proper advice or to find an organization that provided some kind of overview of the mental health services available in Amsterdam. That motivated her to study Psychology. Now, so many years later so little has changed. That’s why she started WegwijsGGZ. “Good guidance in the search for the right care is so important in my experience.”
Hieke (right) has 20 years experience of working in mental health care. Rules, reorganisations, registrations, accountability and distrust from healthcare insurers have impaired the content and quality of the care she offers. Although all of this should serve a good cause, it often misses the point. “I want to go back to what drove me at first: helping people in their psychological suffering. Back to the content. I think it’s important to ask the question: what do you think helps? “
