GT Directory of Mental Health Resources

GT is a very supportive community, but as we are not mental health professionals, the best we can do for someone experiencing a mental health crisis is to refer you to the appropriate resources. While venting and being reassured by other community members may help you in the short run, your long-term mental health is best served by seeking professional help.

The following is a list of resources for various mental health issues. The list includes resources for mental health issues in general as well as specific disorders. Resources available in certain regions are also listed.


We understand that you may not have access to mental healthcare due to lack of insurance or transportation to a facility, but you may still be able to get yourself professional help! Please peruse this list so you can get the help you need!

Also included in this directory is a variety of self-help resources, such as books, discussion forums, and blogs that are targeted specifically to individuals with your mental health issue(s).


This is a living document: if you know of a resource that is not listed here, please let me know in the comments.
