Self-Help

For many people, evidence-based self-help is an effective alternative to therapy.  Self-help can be used in many ways and there is an entire internet of self-help resources available on the world wide web.

 

Self-help can be used to reduce impairment associated with behavioral health problems by effectively treating a specific diagnosis, supporting an individual's ability to more successfully navigate the world or helping with furthering one's self actualization.

Self-help can provide important education on things like our brain and it's functions as well as on our thoughts, feelings and actions, and overall well-being.  Knowledge is power, and for many, finding finding the right answer or gaining new understanding of their behavioral health can negate the need for therapy.
