Show 159 What is ASMR and Psychotherapy in the 21c

Very few people talk about therapy options. Or about access to options. Or how to decide on what kind of treatment you might need and that you do have choices. Some treatments are real world human based and some are delivered via technology.

The goal is to find the right help for you. It might take a bit of effort but you are worth it.

If you need support contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, the Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386 or text “START” to 741-741.
