For your convenience, I have compiled a number of informational pamphlets and factsheets from helpful agencies (e.g., APA, SAMHSA). They are organized into the following groups: General Mental Health, Stress & Trauma, for Parents and Teens, and Addictions. Below are the links to the websites of these agencies and I highly recommend that you browse through them to find helpful resources for you. Many resources and publications are free of charge from these agencies:
