Complaints you might experience
It can come in many forms and colors. You might feel severely limited to engage in social situations, be overly concerned about things in life you were never before. You experience fear and it limits your quality of life.
You experience a low mood for longer periods of time. Things you enjoyed are not giving you joy anymore. You might sleep much more or much less.
This is the term for all bodily complaints that can not be explained by a physical cause, like for example headaches, muscle-pain and back pain. They are often a result of long-term stress.
If you are part of the expat community, you run a much higher risk to get overworked to an extent that you eventually suffer from a burnout. You might experience somatic, depressive or anxiety symptoms.
How to access mental healthcare
Many expats in the Netherlands are unaware of how to get into psychotherapy.
