The purpose of this site
Welcome! We hope you find this site helpful as you address issues and needs for yourself or a loved one. Facing serious emotional difficulties can feel daunting but we believe you can “find a way” to live a healthier life. The paths look different for each person. Each person’s way might include a variety of paths, perhaps different from the usual path. What is most important is to continue the search and know that support is available.
We want to help the process by offering guidance about possible resources. As contributors we are retired professionals in the fields of teaching, health care and law. We have seen a need in the mental health community and have responded by organizing this site for your use.
