ResourcesThis section will feature several resources available to you. We will also post articles and links to information that we feel will be of interest. If you need help, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Support and Self-Help Groups: There are many community support and self-help groups that are directed to specific problems such as alcoholism, drug abuse, AIDS, death of a child, battered women, and infertility. Our office maintains a directory of these groups, and we will be happy to provide you with more details upon request. Sometimes very effective results can be obtained with a combination of individual or family therapy and involvement in a support or self-help group. If we think such participation will benefit you, we are glad to recommend groups that you may join and coordinate your involvement with them.
Community Service: Community service activities are part of our commitment to our profession and to the community we serve. We speak on various mental health topics without charge to a host of nonprofit organizations and groups. If you would like more information about our speaking schedule or availability, please call or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Informational Materials: If you want to learn more about mental health issues, we have a wide assortment of informational materials that are available without charge. We can also direct you to public and private organizations that have extensive libraries of specialized information.
Referrals: No practice can be all things to all people. If we feel, or a patient feels, that we cannot serve his or her needs, referrals are cheerfully made to other professionals.
