We are shocked by the current events in Ukraine. We condemn any form of violence and view the current situation in Ukraine with sadness. We sympathise with all people who are directly or indirectly affected by this and hope for a speedy and peaceful solution.

The situation in Eastern Europe also affects students from Ukraine, Russia and Belarus.

Mental health support

We can imagine that students are struggling to process everything that is happening right now. Please know that you can consult a GP (General Practitioner) with concerns about your mental health. Your doctor can issue a referral to a specialist.

Besides, many Dutch higher education institutions have their own teams of psychologists to support students. You can contact this team of psychologists at your host institution to receive help. Other organizations that can help you are listed here (scroll down to mental health services).

Support for refugees

Visit the website of RefugeeHelp for general help in the Netherlands. RefugeeHelp is the online starting point for Ukrainian refugees in the Netherlands. It provides information about for example education, health care and housing.
