Psychological Helpline

My first job as a psychologist was working on a government funded helpline in Vienna, Austria. I answered close to 10 000 calls over the years and know how important a resource like that is. Here is where many questions around mental health - small and big can be answered:

National Alliance on Mental Illness, NAMI,, 1-800-950-NAMI

Also, Columbia University´s Go Ask Alice! website: http:/ It offers expert-staffed Q&A service and a comprehensive list of outside resources, grouped by topics.
