Self-Help Resources

You are here

Sometimes our problems seem manageable if we can just get a little direction. In these cases, a good self-help resource may be the way to go. Below are a couple of reputable self-help resources. If after using self-help tools you find that you are still feeling stuck, it may be time to speak with a professional. 

While self-help information and information from the internet is useful, it is not a substitute for professional advice. If you are currently in treatment or therapy, please consult your mental health professional before you use any of these resources. If you have questions about services available through CWI please contact Counseling Services

If you are in need of immediate or urgent help, contact a Crisis Hotline or seek help at your nearest Emergency Room, or through a law enforcement agency.  If you are experiencing a mental health emergency call 911.

Please seek immediate professional help:

  • If you have thoughts of killing (or otherwise harming) yourself or others
  • If you are unable to care for yourself or those in your care
  • If you are abusing substances or have an addiction
  • If you or someone else is in danger of harm
  • If you or a loved one are in need of an intervention
