During my training years, I worked in a number of community mental health settings and really appreciate the work of these organizations. Listed below are a few good places to know about, whether you’re a health professional or a client.

In future posts I will create a more comprehensive list of resources specific to substance use, sex information, and post-traumatic stress, among other areas. If you know of good, local organizations to include, or would like me to cover a specific health area, please let me know.
