Yes, the Dutch government has urged all health care, including mental health care, to continue providing care. We are grateful for and proud of our hardworking staff who enable us to accept new admissions. Although the majority of countries imposed travel bans/regulations, and nearly all flights are cancelled, it is in some ways still possible to travel, as long as there is a medical necessity.
