Perhaps you’re not quite ready to begin working with a therapist. That’s ok! Below are some resources that you can explore on your own. And when you’re ready — in your own time — give me a call.
Suicide Prevention Hotlines
I’ve listed some resources below. There are many, many other organizations and people who can help you. But when you need something more than the resources below, contact me through phone, text or email.
You can call 2-1-1 for human service information and assistance. They are available 24 hours a day to listen and provide emotional support, crisis counseling, and more.
Suicide prevention hotlines can help you when your crisis is too much for you. Here is one resource. Call the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention (AFSP) at 800-273-8255 or text TALK to 741741 to talk.
If you are experiencing domestic violence, contact the Domestic Violence hotline at 1-800-799-7233.
Operating around the clock, seven days a week, confidential and free of cost, the National Domestic Violence Hotline provides lifesaving tools and immediate support to enable victims to find safety and live lives free of abuse. Explore resources here.
When you’re feeling depressed, nothing is going right. It’s an illness that involves the body, how you feel and how you think. If you think you may be suffering from depression, take this free, confidential screening test by clicking here.
Alcohol Addiction & Recovery
Addictions are overwhelming for everyone: for you, your family, and everyone around you. Here is a safe way to get started. Click here to find an Alcoholics Anonymous group near you. People share their experience, strength and hope with each other. Sharing stories may be the first step for you.
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. Learn more about A.A. here.
If you have concerns about medications you’re taking, there are two resources for you to consult:
- DrugWatch.com provides up-to-date information about prescription and over-the-counter medications, including details about associated side effects.
- Drugalert.org is a comprehensive database with information and news alerts about potentially dangerous drugs currently on the market or previously available worldwide.
