I can’t imagine going through what I have (anxiety & depression) without the support of others and utilizing the resources that were available to me.  If you find that you or someone you love needs support please don’t hesitate to use the resources provided below.

This list is by no means complete, but it is still lengthy.  I hope and pray you and/or your loved one find peace & healing.

Love & many blessings to you,
