Breda has a lively LGBTQ+ scene due to a relatively young population. This younger population is a result of universities being nearby. As a result, there are at least two gay bars in Breda, which is higher than other cities in North Brabant.
These two bars include Venise Bar and Café D’n Heilige Antonius. Venise Bar is a gay bar in the Old Town, that is one of the longest-running gay bars, having been opened for over 50 years. Café D’n Heilige Antonius is a hipster queer bar also found in the Old Town with quirky and festive decorations like pink flamingos.
The central bureau of statistics in the Netherlands reported that the number of young people that have received specialized mental health care in the Netherlands went up from 366,000 in 2015 to about 405,000 in 2017.
Mental health issues have been increasing at a quick rate in the Netherlands since 2015. In fact, mental health conditions are responsible for 12 million sick days in the nation, costing around €2.7bn every year.
There are youth clinics around the Netherlands that are dedicated to helping youth with their mental health issues. The group Yes We Can provide an alternative to hospital-based care, with multidisciplinary mental health services for its community.

Breda is a city and municipality in the Netherlands, in the North Brabant province. Its name comes from the word breed Aa, which refers to the convergence of the Mark and Aa rivers.
Its city center features ancient buildings and portions of the singels, aka, moats and the harbour. One of the most standout destinations is the Grote Markt, the main square containing pubs and sidewalk cafes.
Another popular sight is Park Valkenberg, a public park located halfway between the central railway station in Breda and the Grote Markt.

Breda was first a direct fief of the duchy of Brabant. The earliest reference to a known lord was Godfrey I (from 1125 to 1170). His family continued managing the town until it was sold off to Brabant in 1327.
Breda was officially chartered in 1252, being passed to the house of Nassau in 1404. Ultimately, it ended up in the hands of William I of Orange (1533 to 1584). It was again fortified from 1531 to 1536 by Count Henry III of Nassau. This leader restored the old castle constructed by John I of Polanen in 1350, and it remained a significant fortress on the Mark until up to the 19th century.
In 2015, the population of Breda was 180,937 residents.
