We provide psychosocial support to migrants and refugees in reception centres and housing projects

Since the closure of the ‘Jungle’ camp in Calais (France) in October 2016, Belgium has seen a slow but steady rise of migrants and refugees in need of material and mental support.

Together with a number of other organisations, we set up a ‘humanitarian hub’ at the Gare du Nord, near Maximilian Park, in Brussels.

Here, our psychologists offer counselling and mental health support as part of a complete package of services for migrants and refugees in transit.

We also offer mental health screening, counselling and psychoeducation to migrants and refugees in three reception centres and a number of individual housing projects in Charleroi and Roeselare.

Cultural briefings and recreational activities are organised to reinforce social networks, and people with symptoms of severe mental health problems are referred to specialist care as appropriate.
