Resources for Support

een cadeutje… Merry Christmas! Please excuse my poor Nederlands. I am disabled and I can’t speak, read or write Nederlands well.


Laced-Up Project is giving a holiday gift to everyone that wants it:

14 February, we are opening “gezellig: A Safe Space” community center at Korte Jansstraat 8!


Next year on December 25th, we are hosting a potluck-dinner at gezellig for everyone that does not celebrate the holidays or finds this to be a challenging time of the year.

Resources for Support from Laced-Up Project


Our community taking care of each other is essential. Here are resources we hope will be helpful to you.


If you are struggling or in crisis please immediately get some help. If you can, reach out to professional help and someone that can support you.


If you want to talk with a coach or therapist about things like your feelings of loneliness, work, addiction, sexuality, etc., it is important to have a therapist or coach that affirms your identity such as practitioners that are sex positive, LGBTQ+ & kink-friendly etc.



Please help make this a better & more comprehensive resource.


Be well,

Sarah & the Laced-Up Project Volunteers


NOTE: Please be aware that we are not mental health professionals. Just folks trying to help.
