The SinaiCenter is a Jewish mental health institution.  The center is specialized in the treatment of the most common psychological complaints of the Jewish target group and for psychotrauma in general.  The Jewish identity of the center has always played a central role.  This is expressed in values such as care for each other, solidarity and easy accessibility.  The center is available to everyone, regardless of background or religion.   The SinaiCenter is the only Jewish center with psychotrauma expertise and mental health care in Europe. 

The SinaiCenter is located in Amstelveen, Utrecht and Amersfoort.
