Review for HelpGuide, Santa Monica, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Extraordinarily helpful newsletter full of excellent articles and advice about so many different kinds of mental conditions. I have a close friend who suffers from serious anxiety and depression and through HelpGuide I've been able to educate myself about these conditions and find ways to be a better friend. Compassionate listening and daily checking in has served to let her know that she isn't alone in these difficult times. Though her depression has been exacerbated by the physical distancing required to stay Covid=safe during the Coronavirus pandemic, maintaining social closeness has been all the more important. My keeping in touch and knowing what's helpful to say and what's not helpful, are things I've learned from HelpGuide. I particularly appreciated the September 2020 issue. Thank you.
