Welcome to the Community Help Service

CHS has been supporting the international community of Belgium since 1971, regardless of nationality or their circumstances . No-one should feel that they are alone - help is only a telephone call away.

CHS operates a Mental Health Services Centre in Brussels, housing an international team of professional therapists who provide support for a comprehensive range of mental health issues. All our therapists speak English and many also work in other languages. The therapists are supported by a team of volunteers who also manage the administrative aspects of CHS, a non-profit organisation.

We also operate a 24/7 Helpline in English, for children, adolescents and adults. Calls are free of charge, anonymous and confidential.The Helpline is staffed by a team of volunteers that is recruited, trained, supervised and supported by the mental health professionals working with CHS.
