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.

The CHS Mental Health Services Centre is an appointment-only service and does not have a drop-in emergency facility. In an emergency where you require immediate access to psychiatric help and live in the Brussels/Leuven area, click the link below.

IMPORTANT

Community Help Service is committed to the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and clients. During the current coronavirus situation, we have put in place guidelines which protect our community whilst reducing the impact on our services. This includes reducing our in-office staff and using video conferencing for our meetings and training.

If you visit the Centre as a client, we ask you to follow these rules:

1) Clients must wear a mask at all times whilst visiting the Centre unless explicitly stated by their therapist. They must also sanitise their hands upon entry.

2) Clients should arrive as close to their appointment time as possible and will be greeted at the door by their therapist. The waiting room is not in use.

3) Do not attend your appointment if you develop flu symptoms or respiratory complaints.

4) It is important that should you experience any COVID symptoms or test positive following a visit to our Centre, you notify CHS in writing, especially if your visit occurred within the 2 days prior to your symptoms appearing, so that appropriate action can be taken promptly.

We invite you to join Pieta at sunrise on May 8th 2021 for a special Darkness Into Light Sunrise. Wherever you are in the world, let's walk together under one sunrise, holding in our hearts all those impacted by suicide and self-harm.
Each and every year, your vital support enables Pieta and our partner charities across the globe to change the lives of thousands of people struggling with suicidal thoughts, or self-harming.

Since 2012 when our first international Darkness Into Light event took place in London, over €3.5 million has been raised for our mental health partner charities around the world.
Sign up for a special Darkness Into Light sunrise today, and take part locally with your loved ones.

This year, we are asking all of more our adventurous supporters to don their cycling helmets, dust off their hiking boots and get involved in the Darkness Into Light Challenge. Sign up for free, and fundraise to support Pieta and your local partner charity by getting involved in your favourite activity, in your local area.

Get together with friends and family (near and far) to create a virtual team, or get out there by yourself to become the Darkness Into Light hero we always knew you were!
