Resources

There are several self-help support groups in the area that cover a variety of issues and are free of charge (e.g., AA/NA, suicide survivor, rape survivor, depression/anxiety, dating violence, learning disabilities, eating disorders). Generally there is a contact number and person who you have to call prior to attending the group, but some groups are open to having people drop in. You can also check with your local National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), hospital, or the local Mental Health Board for a list of local support groups and contact information for the issues you would like to explore.
