Of course we want everyone to be in a good mood.

Therefore, if you’re having a hard time with something and you’d like to talk about it, you can email our counselors at Think of problems surrounding your sexuality or anything else personal. Everything you discuss with our counselors is confidential. You can also contact our counselors anonymously using a fake (anonymous) email address. Nobody will ask you for personal details if you don’t want to share them.

Our counselors are available to both Anterians and people who are not a member!

Our counselors this year (2022-2023) are Gerco Korteweg, Sophie van Donselaar en Erin Lejeune. They’ll be available for you all year and will try to support you as best as they can!
Do you feel like a conversation with a counselor isn’t enough? Via them or via the board you can find more sources to get help. or More sources can be found at the bottom of the page.

Do not hesitate to call this number (0900 – 0113) if you or somebody you know is contemplating suicide, or is feeling desperate. Help is available in English and Dutch.

Mental health crises

Or call: 030 230 8850

Click on the call button to call the crisis service (Utrecht city) directly if you or someone else is in a mental emergency situation.

You can also call your GP or (outside working hours) a GP post. They will then advise you what is best in your situation.

Unlike the emergency number 113, when you contact the crisis line, you call a small team of staff (consisting of a psychiatrist, psychologist and, e.g., a SPV’er).
