Therapy in the office is not the only way that people can help themselves feel better. There are a lot of community services and self-help groups as well as self-help websites and books available to persons who for various reasons decide not to work with a therapist. Here are a few links to websites of organizations that I review regularly and believe that they offer quality information:
www.aascocso.qwestoffice.net – AA website for SO. Colorado
www.achievesolutions.net - Resource center for many kinds of issues, managed by Valueoptions
www.heartbeatsurvivoraftersuicide.org – For survivors of a suicide of a loved one
www.kidpwower.org - Bullying, abuse prevention
www.loveandlogic.com - innovative parenting solutions
www.nami.org - valuable information and training for family members of people with mental illness
