Part of the mission of TWLOHA is to connect people to treatment and sources of help. Regardless of what you may be facing, reaching out for help from a counselor, joining a support group, or even calling a hotline can be a great place to start.
The resources listed here are just a few of many. When reaching out to treatment providers, we always encourage people to begin by connecting with resources from licensed mental health providers. While TWLOHA believes in the power and efficacy of treatment, you are responsible for interviewing and selecting the provider or treatment. As TWLOHA does not provide treatment services, TWLOHA cannot accept responsibility for any of the services provided by these or any other providers.
TWLOHA is not a 24-hour helpline, nor are we trained mental health professionals. TWLOHA hopes to serve as a bridge to help.
