Resources

If you are an immediate danger to yourself or others – don’t wait, call 911! You deserve to stay and be safe, so please, take care and get help! <3

Here are some of the various resources I’ve found in my scouring of the internet.  It’s nowhere near comprehensive, but it ought to get us started and hopefully you’ll be able to find something that helps you out. I’ve checked out most of the resource links, but please let me know if anything isn’t working or has gone out of date.  Things sure change fast and I might not catch them when they do!

As always, if you have any recommendations for other resources, please get in touch!
