Welcome to Our
Question & Answer Department

We are happy to offer you answers to some of the questions sent to us. To use us wisely and find what you need, please read this whole page.

Your Other Resources: Please note: We are volunteer professionals, and as such won't:

  • Do library research for you. (We do have library links, however)
  • Help with your homework (c'mon, now ;-)
  • Answer suicide notes or homicide threats (If this is your situation, call a professional in your community now. You are worth it!)

If you feel the need for an immediate response for any reason, here are other options for you:

  • Contact your local Psychological Associations, or look in your phone book for counselors or psychologists.

  • Therapist Information Network (TIN) is an online directory of mental health practitioners. Please use this directory at your own discretion -- we do not monitor it.
If you want to possibly chat about your situation over time with other readers, try our Discussion Zone!
