For the CERN Community

Standing by your loved one while they fulfill their dreams at CERN may require you leaving aside your own dreams for a while. Moving country, quitting a job, leaving far from your friends and family are things most of us experience, as partners of CERNOIS .

This is why I am running a quasi-voluntary group therapy at CERN Welcome Club with priority to those with no (or limited) access to insurance benefits. Feel free to contact me if you are interested to join us.

CERN Health insurance (CHIS)

Always consult CHIS prior to starting your Therapy.

CERN provides to its personnel, fellows and students a comprehensive health insurance that covers alternative therapies with a prescription from a doctor. Please consult Uniqa prior to starting your therapy.

For a complete list of services of the CHIS scheme consult the latest version of their document found under their website.
