Derek van Enk has been working at Yes We Can Clinics since 2011. He was head of the clinic for many years and has been working for the external contacts and relations department since mid-2017. Since 2019, Derek is in charge of quality and development management.
From the age of 13, Derek himself has struggled hard with addictions and psychological problems. At the age of 27, the turning point in his life was the fact that he came into contact with care services where making a real connection was pivotal. After that turnaround, Derek has built up a great career, in which he has become successful on both a personal and social level.
In 2006, Derek founded his own travel agency “Ardennen Actief”. After a few years, he came into contact with Yes We Can Clinics. Grasped by their way of working, Derek started working for the organisation in 2011. In 2012, Derek decided to sell his own company.
For the last 8 years, he has been using all his knowledge and experience to help young people aged 13-23 who are struggling with mental health issues, addictions and behavioural problems on a fulltime basis.
