iMindU GGZ is a mental health institution (GGZ-instelling) and has a multidisciplinary outpatient child, adolescent and (mainly young) adult psychiatric clinic, aimed at the international community, while also serving the local community. It is based in the historic inner city of Leiden in the Netherlands. iMindU GGZ aims to provide care with a soul in a healing environment. The clinic itself wants to provide a warm home away from home feeling when you find yourself or your children and family faced with mental health issues while living as an asylum seeker, displaced person or expat in the Netherlands or abroad. Therefore the clinic is furnished with items from all continents and has hospitality as one of its core values. In addition, we speak several languages and aim at no or short waiting lists. If needed expats and others can come in for an intensive diagnostics track or (high)intensive treatment. Digitally, iMindU offers an online intake for Dutch citizens abroad who will come in later, e-health modules, e-consultation, a digital prescription service for (psycho)pharmacology, online/hybrid therapy (e.g. EMDR and CBT) and a global transitions portfolio. This makes it easy to provide continuity over time when relocating.

Intake/first meeting

We have had very little waiting time for the past 6 years (usually 1-2 weeks) after admission and completion of paperwork. We first offer a short intake by phone by a (child and adolescent)psychiatrist followed by a first face-to-face appointment with a (child and adolescent)psychiatrist and psychotherapist or psychologist and intern to define what you need. A (child)psychiatric assessment and hetero-anamnesis with parents or spouses is a standard part of initial assessment. First advice usually possible within a week if agendas match. This could be additional diagnostics and/or start of treatment, followed by a second advice meeting after diagnostics have lead to a conclusion.
