National Panel: Psychologically Respected
In 2010 the Trimbos Institute initiated the panel Psychologically Respected, a large, national panel by and for people with mental health conditions. The goal of Psychologically Respected is to provide insight into the social functioning of people in the Netherlands who are affected in their communities by ongoing mental health problems, as well as their experiences with mental healthcare and living conditions. Psychologically Respected allows those affected by mental health conditions to raise their voices in societal debates about the Dutch mental health care system. The panel collects data through questionnaires, phone interviews and opinion polls. The Trimbos Institute coordinates the panel and works closely with Phrenos, LPGGZ, and Nivel. The panel is subsidized by the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare, and Sports.
