This article presents the results of a research project whose objective was to describe and analyse how people seeking asylum in the Netherlands2 make sense of their experience. The broader aim of this study was to provide information that could lead to improved mental health care (Kramer, Bala, Dijk van, & öry, 2003). This article accordingly ends with suggestions to implement the study's findings in other countries where refugees face uncertainty.
