Mental Health Evaluation, Assessment and Counseling Services

Finding a counseling and/or mental health service that is right for you is important. Resources listed on our website are for the purpose of empowering you to find the service that works best for your individual situation, whether services are self-chosen or ordered by a court.

Remember that these emotional issues are impacted by legal factors. If at all possible, talk with a lawyer of your own so you know what options you have and can have your case ready for court.
