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.

The Community Help Service annual calendar is much more than a calendar. It's full of useful, practical and sometimes 'out-of–the way' information for both newcomers to Brussels and long-term residents. All information is up to date and presented in an easily-accessible format.
The CHS calendar is a valuable reference source throughout the year – just one of the many reasons people collect it year after year.
