On Monday you can find @ease at LAB6 in Slotervaart. LAB6 is a production house for young people in Amsterdam and is run by various youth organizations. At LAB6 our @ease volunteers will meet you at the entrance and will guide you to our @ease area. There you can speak privately in a relaxing atmosphere.
You can reach us via chat on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3.30 pm to 6 pm.
When the conversation is finished, the volunteers will ask you to complete a questionnaire on an iPad. This can be done anonymously. The answers are used for research. For example, we would like to know how you found @ease and how you rate the conversation. Your opinion is important to us. You can help us improve @ease. If you would rather not cooperate, that is no problem.
