The Dutchlink Board would like to announce a special edition of ‘Dutchlink Goes Online’ about Mental Health. Later this month, Dutchlink Board Director Annerie van Maarschalkerweerd will interview Sydney based and Dutch born Psychologist Lonneke van der Laan.

With most of Australia in lockdown and the Australian borders being closed for almost 2 years it’s not a secret that the question ‘R U OK?’ is getting more important every day!

The interview will be pre-recorded however we appreciate member involvement so should you have any burning questions for Lonneke, please send them through to us by Thursday 16 September.

Please note, this interview will be held in Dutch as we think that talking about a subject like this will be easier in your mother tongue.

Lonneke van der Laan, is a Dutch born Psychologist. She obtained her BSc in Psychology and MSc in Child & Adolescent Psychology at Utrecht University. Part of her bachelor degree was completed at Monash University in Melbourne.

After having lived and worked in Melbourne for several years, Lonneke now resides in Sydney. She currently works as a General Psychologist at LifeConnect, a private practice located in North Sydney. Lonneke’s main areas of interest are anxiety/stress, depression, trauma, grief/loss, and adjustment issues.
