We have developed an ongoing list of links here that may be useful to our clients and other website visitors.  These sites can provide more information about specific mental health topics, feature relevant books, videos, and other materials for purchase, or simply offer additional support for those in need.
We hope that this can become a reliable resource for anyone overwhelmed by the quantity of information online that can sometimes be more accessible than it is accurate.

To the extent possible, we will attempt to include the most credible and trustworthy listings on this resource page.  Please understand, however, that the individuals or organizations listed are solely responsible for their claims or content, and sometimes their views may not entirely reflect our own. Also, in the interest of full disclosure, there may be some organizations or online retailers that offer nominal compensation to us for providing links to their websites.  These monies will hopefully help defray the costs associated with providing, maintaining, or expanding this website and our article archives.  And, of course, one final reminder:  This page is for informational purposes only and any information derived here may not necessarily be applicable in your own circumstances.  Most importantly, information presented here is not intended to replace medical consultation or counseling that is often essential in addressing issues of mental health in children.

As always – please consult a qualified professional for more specific and individualized help!!
