Various assistance options

General practitioners/Student physicians

You can seek out support from your GP for medical issues, such as psychological symptoms. Sometimes, the nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant of your GP can provide you with assistance quickly. If you require some other kind of psychological help, your GP can refer you to a psychologist, therapist, or other treatment professional.

Students

If you are completing a degree or study programme, the university often provides support options as well. The specific options vary depending on the study programme. You can request more information about these from your dean or student psychologist.

Startpunt

Do you have questions or would you like advice on your situation? For instance, would you like to know more about topics such as housing, welfare, healthcare, education, raising children, work, and finances? Do you need help with specific matters? A Startpunt employee will discuss your questions with you (and your parents, if applicable) in order to identify how to help you further.

Youth Information Point (JIP)

You may have questions that you would rather not talk about with your parents, friends, or teachers. If that is the case, you can always contact the Youth Information Point (JIP). The JIP provides information on topics such as friendship, sexuality, money problems, alcohol, drugs, and more. You can also contact JIP for information about part-time jobs, applying for jobs, and youth initiatives.

Where can I find this information?

There are various locations in Wageningen (schools, libraries, Huizen van de Wijk, and ‘t Oude Bijenhuis youth centre) that have information kiosks with brochures for you to take and read. If you want more personalised advice, send an e-mail or come by for a visit.
