Helpful Resources

Hi, everyone!


I've compiled a list of mental health resources that I think we all should be aware of. We never know when one or more of these resources can help us, a friend, or family member. By all means, this is not an exhaustive list. Therefore, consider it a living document that I will add to when necessary.


National Hotlines (anonymous and confidential):


National Suicide Prevention Hotline

(800) 273-8255

Boston Area Rape Crisis Center 

800-841-8371

Fenway Community Health Center’s Violence Recovery 

617 927-6202

ATASK Multilingual Hotline

617-338-2355

SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration)

1-800-662-HELP (4357)


Here is an additional list of help hotlines across the country.


Helpful Online Resources:


Psychology Today: An online directory where you can search for licensed therapists in your area. They have a great search tool that will help you narrow down what you are looking for in a therapist (clinical style, insurance accepted, etc.) Psychology Today also publishes online articles and a bi-monthly magazine that provides reader-friendly information about the field of psychology.


Great list of free online resources for specific mental health related issues such as bipolar disorder, postpartum depression, etc. Thanks, Oprah!


Huffington Post: I enjoy reading their online articles on mental health. I find them to be so honest and relatable. A lot of the articles make you feel "wow, I am not alone in this!"


Mobile Apps:


calm.com Great mobile app/website for anxiety, meditation, and mindfulness. I particularly love the "daily calm" notifications and body scans.


PTSD Coach: Developed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affair, PTSD Coach is a useful mobile app for people who are experiencing symptoms of PTSD.


Mango Health: Pill reminder and helpful medication information- useful for clients who are on prescribed medications.


What's Up?: Excellent app for people experiencing depression, anxiety, and anger outbursts. Gives users great grounding tips & introduces helpful therapeutic skills.
