Experiences and perspectives of black people and people of color on mental health care in the Netherlands.
The Netherlands, like many European countries, has embraced mental healthcare as an important issue. It has contributed to an increase in literature and books on managing mental health issues. Unfortunately, however, the Netherlands, like other European countries, also suffers from institutional racism. This evening we will talk about the importance of awareness when it comes to cultural differences within mental health care. For example, to what extent is it possible 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.
