Where to Find Help

UPDATED March 11, 2010

American Psychological Association (APA) Locator
Web: http://locator.apa.org/
The APA has a feature to locate a counselor or therapist in your area who can help you if you are experiencing emotional abuse - you can select "domestic violence" from the drop-down list on their webpage. Therapists are trained to help people in crisis and could be a big support for someone suffering in this way. To find out if the therapist accepts your health insurance or what his/her fee is, you would have to contact the person directly.

Yes ICAN
Web: http://www.yesican.org/chat.html
