Each day, I get lots of requests to help people with various social and medical problems. Here is a resource guide that I compiled for our readers in the hope it would help you on your path to wellness. Currently, I am not available to practice traditional psychotherapy or provide social services via the Internet. However, it is my intention to point you in the direction of the help you are seeking. If you are reading this post and are currently experiencing a life threatening psychiatric or medical emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. If you are experiencing a non-emergent psychiatric or medical problem, your family doctor or health care provider is a great person to ask for help. Here is list of resources that may be able to help you on your journey to overcome your struggles and live a peaceful and healthy life. If you find any non-working or wrong numbers here, please let me know so I can correct them.
