We often create "composite questions" based on frequently asked questions posed by our readers. So when you return to this page to find an answer below, be sure to read the existing answers carefully. The most frequent reason for unanswered questions is that an answer to the topic submitted may already exist, or there is not enough reader interest in that area. If in doubt, use our internal Search Engine.

For your added benefit, we also have an extensive list of links to other resources through our Links and Lists Department.

Please remember, this column is designed to help the consumer seeking behavioral-health information, and not intended to be any form of psychotherapy or a replacement for professional, individualized services. Opinions expressed in the column are those of the columnist and do not represent the position of other staff.

This is an index of past questions and answers only.

You can also visit our Discussion Zone, to discuss issues with other readers.
