This directory is a very useful tool to help people find a counselor, therapist, psychologist, and/or psychiatrist throughout North America. However, this only serves as a directory. As an organization we do not endorse or guarantee that the mental health professionals listed will deliver appropriate services. Furthermore, if you or a loved one has a medical or psychological emergency, and may be a danger to yourself/themselves or others, then please call 911 and seek help immediately. This website does NOT serve as an emergency hotline and is not monitored daily. We pray this is a benefit to all who use it.
