iMindU is 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 aims to provide care with a soul. 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 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 a global transitions portfolio. This makes it easy to provide continuity over time when relocating.

Intake/first meeting

Due to a huge amount of admissions, some major transitions we face and the approaching summer with holidays we have installed A TEMPORARY ADMISSION STOP till mid-August 2022. In case this changes we will announce it here on the website.

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 to define what you need. A (child)psychiatric assessment and hetero-anamnesis with parents or spouses is a standard part of initial assessment. Depending on paperwork completed, the first meeting could take place within a week from admission. Check our waiting time on this website or contact our secretariat to inquire about availability.
