07-14-2005, 12:20 PM
I dont know what the best way to find a therapist is, i dont have friends to ask and no way am i telling my family doc about my issues. should i look in the phonebook? is there some kind of place to get feedback on quality therapists can someone from nebraska advise me maybe
I wish I knew of a review site for therapists, perhaps someone else can offer suggestions?
I do have some bookmarks for organizations which have both directories for local mental health organizations & search engines for therapists, in North America:
ADAA search: http://www.adaa.org/GettingHelp/FindATherapist.asp
ADAA Treament Centers: http://www.adaa.org/gettinghelp/Publications/TreatmentCenter.asp
SAMHSA's Mental Health Services Locator (government site):
APA (American Psychological Association) search: http://locator.apahelpcenter.org/
APA State & Provincial Psychological Associations: http://www.apa.org/practice/refer.html
American Psychiatric Association (also with the acronym APA): http://www.healthyminds.org/locateapsychiatrist.cfm
APA (Psychiatric) District Branch/State Association Directory: http://www.psych.org/dbs_state_soc/db_list/db_info_dyn.cfm
AABT (Association for Advancement of Behavior Therapy) search:
NMHA (National Mental Health Association) search (right side of screen): http://www.nmha.org/
NMHA Affiliate Directory: http://www.nmha.org/affiliates/directory/index.cfm
NAMI (National Alliance for the Mentally Ill) Directory:
MedLine Plus Local Health Services Search:
MedLine Plus directory:
Freedom from Fear referral service:
Psychology Today therapists search:
And finally the 'therapist finder':
Phew, what a list. hehe.. and probably not even half of the ones that are out there.
You could also try your local yellow pages, or even an online yellow pages search like http://www.bigbook.com/
hope that helps!
P.S. Most of these links are for finding therapists in North America - I hope someone else can chime in with international resources ;) Otherwise, I may save that research for another day
try a search engine on the net for your state
