Welcome!


We have gathered in one place a special collection of materials on the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness and - equally important - on strategies to promote and sustain mental and emotional wellness. This guide includes hotline information, links to mental health organizations in Orange and Rockland Counties and New York State as well as national organizations, and to advocacy and education resources.  It also offers a sampling of the materials on mental health disorders in the book and DVD collection at Albert Wisner Public Library in Warwick, NY.

Our hope is that these resources will provide information, support those on the journey from diagnosis to recovery, and emphasize wellness and helpful coping strategies to meet life's challenges - with the ultimate goals of raising mental health awareness and reducing the stigma associated with mental illness.

                        We invite you to use these resources and encourage you to provide suggestions to improve this guide.
