Speak to these people
Topic: An address everyone needs

The following may sound a little wordy but be patient and pay special attention to the second paragraph:

"The Children’s Hospital Association is offering a webinar tour of the newly launched Speak Now for Kids website at www.speaknowforkids.org. Speak Now for Kids is a nonpartisan online advocacy network designed to help raise public awareness of the unique challenges children and families face in our changing health care system. Advocates are encouraged to: interact with other champions for children’s health care by learning about issues affecting kids’ health; exchange information through an online forum; and take action in support of public policies that benefit kids and families.

 We're parents, grandparents, teachers, nurses, doctors, hospital workers, teens — people like you, who care about how kids' health care affects our future. Join us and become a champion for children's health."

My point here is go to their web site and tell your story. If you feel you have gotten good help let them know. If you feel you have gotten poor help tell your story. You deserve to give your side of the picture. Perhaps you will learn where you can get more help in your neck of the woods with your problems at home. Just do it.

Don't Despair
Topic: An address everyone needs

I am updating The Resource Chapter in the book, FOR TEENAGERS LIVING WITH A PARENT WHO ABUSES ALCOHOL/DRUGS. As you know addresses change. New help agencies are born. Some help agencies close down. While doing my research I came across the following new site. I want you all to have it before the new edition comes out. If you ever feel down, blue or need help visit these people.

CTL (Crisis Text Line) helps individuals in crisis by connecting them with a compassionate, trained listener through a toll-free texting service. CTL is available nationwide and 24/7. Text “CTL” to 741741 You can also visit their web site www.crisistextline.org 

I personally texted this group and they texted me back in less than a minute. When I told them that I was only making sure that they were a valid group they texted me back twice to ask if I was all right. Great Group.
