Arkin is a GGZ organisation for specialist mental healthcare in Amsterdam. Their mission is to help clients regain control over their lives and shape it in a healthy way. Domestic and foreign research have shown largely the same thing: LGBTI have bigger risk to experience psychological problems, poorer health and use more alcohol and substances than heterosexuals. This has everything to do with the discrimination and stress they have to endure. Their motto on the boat: “Be your own hero! Arkin is your sidekick.”Find your own lifestyle, be your own hero. And if the compass is lost or someone is about to drown, the sidekicks from Arkin will be there. No Batman without Robin.
