You can find @ease Rotterdam in the center of Rotterdam, in the central library, at Hoogstraat 110.
The Library is a 2-minute walk from metro and train station Blaak. Bus 48, tram 21 and metro lines A, B and C stop nearby.
In the library we are located on the second floor at the Center for Youth and Family (CJG).
The entrance to the library is located on the side of the market square. You can just walk in and take the escalator to the second floor. In the corner near the children's and youth books you can find the entrance to the CJG. When we are open, our banner will be at the doorstep and you will find one of our volunteers to welcome you. We have a nice room where you can talk in a calm and private space.
If you come to us together with someone else, then that person can of course accompany you to the conversation room or that person can wait for you in the library. That’s up to you. We understand that it can be quite exciting or maybe stressful for you when you visit us for the first time. Almost everyone has that. That is why we start in a relaxed manner with a cup of coffee or tea and we’ll see what we can do for you.
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.
You can reach us via chat on Monday, Wednesday, Tuesday and Thursday from 3.30 pm to 6 pm.

Do you think of suicide and do you need immediate help?
Many young people find it difficult to talk about suicide. But we know that talking about suicidal thoughts can be very helpful. It helps to eliminate loneliness and tension. You become calmer. The other can help you to organize your thoughts. And will try to find a solution together with you.
