I moved to St. Louis about 5 years ago looking for help. I was very lucky to get medical and some financial help. However I was having trouble finding any way to socialize mainly because for one I was still very suicidal. The hospitals and doctors were not helping very much in this area. Finally I got a pysch. Dr. and began a lot of work and counseling. About three and half years later and being passed around like a rag doll, someone gave me the name and address of the Self Help Center. I didn’t come right away cause I just figured it was another dead end. My best friend in New Orleans talked me into coming. He kept pressuring me to go inside. I have to say it was the best thing I have done in over ten years. I walked in and felt so welcomed by the director and one of the peer specialists. I knew right away I was in the right place and felt so accepted. I could sit here and write for ever and go on about how great this place is. So come down and see us you will be glad you did.
