If you have study problems, such as:
If you have personal problems that are getting in the way of study, for example:
If you have study problems because of AD(H)D or autism spectrum disorder

If your problems
In these cases, you are better off going to your family doctor/GP. He or she can look into what the matter is together with you and, where necessary, refer you to the Praktijk Ondersteunend Hulpverlener (Care Worker Supporting the Practice), the Basis/Generalistische GGZ (Basic/General mental healthcare) or the Specialistische GGZ (Specialised mental healthcare). If you do not know how to proceed, the student psychologists can give a brief explanation.
If you are being treated elsewhere and you are dissatisfied with it
You are advised to discuss your dissatisfaction with the person who is treating you or with the person who referred you to this person. That is your family doctor/GP in most cases.
