Project Resilience

project resilienceSybil and Steve Wolin are co-directors of Project Resilience, a private organization in Washington DC that consults to schools, clinics and prevention agencies. They offer teaching materials, products and also provide information which they help you understand better and they also train you in it as well.  These products deal with a strengths-based approach to young people and to older people as well, for such things as depression, violence, and alcoholism and substance abuse.

For 25 years (since 1988), they have offered these products and services to consumers and professionals.  They have presented more than 200 workshops and have also been on many television and radio shows as well.

7 Cups of Tea

7 cups of teaIt is important to have someone to listen to you sometimes.  Someone to truly listen to you–and not judge you and to not know your past history or hangups.  Some people just need someone to listen to them, period, and not talk at all.  It is important to have someone to listen back.  I have been there myself!

 With 7 Cups of Tea, listeners are trained in Active Listening. Some of the listeners are free, some charge a nominal fee for their service.  Nominal from what I have seen is from .50 USD down to .003 USD per minute.

 At present they are doing over 100 call and chat requests a day. They currently work with a number of organizations like NAMI, Active Minds, the International Bipolar Foundation and several others.

If you feel you have no one to talk to, here you are.  Someone to listen to you, someone who will definitely hear what you have to say.

Military Pathways Mental Health Screening

military pathwaysBeing in the military alone can be severely stressful.  Adding a family, or a war, or threat of war to the equation definitely makes it much more stressful.  This website is tied in with the United States Department of Defense and the nonprofit organization, Screening for Mental Health, who are trying to find via assessments if a military man or woman is experiencing traumatic events.

For instance, these assessments will help a person find out whether or not they might have some common mental health issues including, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, alcohol problems and more. Of course, just as with Psych Central, the screening will not provide a diagnosis – for that you need to see your own professional.   It will help point you towards a direction, tell you what you might have and where best you can seek assistance.

Best of all, your screening can be anonymous.  No one will come up and show your results and say this is Dr. Clyde’s results.  This will definitely help you if you feel you need the help.  Don’t wait any longer!

Mirror, Mirror Eating Disorders

mirror mirrorUpfront, this website is not a website that is for a person who needs a Doctor who would come and tell you what to do with your Eating Disorder or whether you even have an Eating Disorder.  However; that being said, this website is well worth it’s weight (no pun intended) as it understands and appreciates the suffering and shame you might be going through.

Started back in 1997 by Colleen Thompson, when she was having an eating disorder issue, she wanted to educate herself and provide support to herself and others who need assistance from the eating disorder.  Mirror, Mirror even asks that if you do not find the information on their website that pertains to you that you can email them and they will either try to include the information or direct you to a website or to somewhere where the information can be found.

With any kind of disorder people are suffering from, there are two things:  people don’t want to have it (of course), and people want to know they are not suffering alone.  This site helps those who suffer from Eating Disorders to alleviate the later, and hopefully the former.
