Here are resources recommended to me by others (colleagues, clients or friends), who have found them helpful. I do not endorse all aspects expressed in these resources, and recommend being selective, taking what fits for you and leaving what does not. Often, they are initial informational sources that can guide you to related topics and more in depth exploration.

I also have on-line video’s, audios and Handouts on a range of mental health issues on my C2, Caring2gether, group english therapy practice site. We have online resources you can join and use in our self-care community.
