Which mental health challenges do expats face?

Brussels explained with Sarah Crew

Feeling like an insider instead of an outsider is the best thing that can happen to an expat living abroad. But getting there isn’t always easy and moving abroad comes with a set of challenges. How does this impact the mental health of expats?

During this edition of Brussels Explained, journalist Sarah Crew will give an explainer on health challanges expats face, followed by a conversation with Selma Franssen and questions from the audience. 


Brussels Explained


deBuren, Curieus and The Bulletin joined hands with journalist Selma Franssen to organise an English edition of ´Moeilijke Dingen Makkelijk Uitgelegd´ with a focus on Brussels. And fortunately, in these times of social distancing, we can also circulate knowledge online. Every Wednesday in September and November we invite an expert to give a presentation on a complex topic, followed by questions from the audience moderated by Selma Franssen on Facebook Live. For those people who don´t use social media: each explainer will also be published as a podcast by Yelena Schmitz on the website after each live session.
