“"This website contains a wealth of materials for professionals to use. It is beautiful and practical material created by very knowledgeable experts."”Augeo FoundationEdith Geurts, Marga Haagmans
“Working with "the resilience flower resource chart" became a very interesting journey for me together with trainers and colleagues. The depth of this instrument was revealed to me. This tool provides an opportunity together with the client, be it a child or an adult, to understand what it takes them to persevere in difficult situations, to seek and invent new opportunities to move forward.Anna Kukuruza (Ukraine)PhD, Executive director, Charity Fund Early Intervention Institute, Kharkiv, Ukraine.
Many thanks for the opportunity to think and take care of yourself during the training. This was important precisely now, when I, as a specialist from Ukraine, am going through my own experience of the war in my country.”
“"The Mental Box is a very nice collection of the tools I have been collecting for many years. Until now all scattered over many separate interventions and searches. It answers many help questions that I encounter in day-to-day practice. Nice that a combo can be made between downloads, stories, audio and videos. Always a form or several forms that suit clients. Furthermore, a layout with soft colors is used and that is very appealing. All in all, it is clear to see that a lot of time and energy has been put into the Mental Box "reach beyond your practice" by people who know what connects with children and adolescents."”Valerie Smeets (Dutch)Director at Somnium

“Who’s behind the Mental Box?”
Who is Drs. Naomi Vandamme?
Naomi Vandamme is a Holistic Psychologist, Clinical Child Psychologist and Health Care Psychologist with many years of international experience in the profession. Naomi Vandamme developed the concept of MOGO because she deeply believes that TOGETHER we can all grow in ways that would not be possible to accomplish alone. Lot’s of the materials are based on the science of happiness as on different principles of holistic health and wellbeing. By growing together with our children, we can create something greater than ourselves—something that will last for generations to come. Naomi believes that creating child-friendly materials that simplify and make palatable the complex themes of life, we can strengthen the bond we have with our children and help them prepare (inside and out) for the rest of their lives.
