We believe the searching process starts from your own wishes and needs

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? “

Vision

We believe that everyone should be able to find help easily within the mental healthcare system, and that everyone should know what help can be found in Amsterdam. Especially because you then have input about the help you receive and it is not determined for you. Personal choice is an important factor in treatment. The organization of the mental healthcare system is changeable, complex and complicated. Health insurers and government policies mean that care must meet different requirements and conditions. The requirements are often understandable from the point of view of cost savings, however they are also often at odds with the quality and accessibility of care within the mental healthcare system . We can not change the system, but we can think along, help and inform you.
