Evidence-Based 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 human behavioral and overall behavioral health.  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. 

Below you will find some of our favorite self-help tools and resources.
