We at the ICL recognize that now more than ever before, resources for those with mental health needs should be as familiar and easily accessible as possible to our patrons.
Here are a few resources for anyone who wants to learn more about their own mental health, as well as the mental health of others.
Remember, reaching out when you or a loved one needs assistance is a sign of strength – not a weakness.
Seven Cups of Tea – The Q&A section of this website allows users to look up by category a wide variety of issues that other users are going/have gone through, and how others on the site have responded to them. This site is consistently monitored and maintained by mental health professionals.
Suicide Prevention Lifeline – This website offers a phone number, and many other resources, for those contemplating suicide. There are also web pages specifically available for Native Americans, LGBTQ individuals, veterans and young people.
