Knowledge is power, right? Okay, so that might sound a bit cliche, but it's really true. That's what this site is all about--empowering the person with mental illness an his or her caregivers/loved ones. This page contains links to outside resources that might help you with mental illness, self-injury, and suicide.
National Alliance on Mental Illness
I have heard really great things about this organization. They have support groups for people with mental illness as well as groups for the caregivers.
Mental Health America
I used to attend their programs, but I found it to be very academic. They did offer art therapy, but it mainly consisted of drawing, which doesn't really work for a totally blind person. I did take part in their
WRAP program, and some aspects of that were helpful. It was shortly after I got out of the
so I was pretty anxious and depressed. If I still lived in the town where Mental Health America was located, I would attend WRAP again as a refresher course.

I have used MyStrength before; it's associated with nmy mental health clinic, and your doctgor's office or mental health care provider might use it, too. Ask about it the next time you visit. In the mean time, you might want to visit:
and look at the things available.
