The New Directions Resource Center has key information that can be of great use in your choice to get some support.
Sometimes, people aren’t sure if they should be seeking treatment or not. Our resource center provides reliable information on a variety of mental and behavioral health topics. Some of these items are self-assessments and useful applications; many are articles and lists of symptoms.
Educating yourself about mental and behavioral health is a great idea, but depression is not the same as a broken collarbone. While the resource center can help determine whether you should seek treatment for yourself, or perhaps a loved one — it is not a substitute for diagnosis by a professional clinician.
