Where to Find Free Emotional Support

You are not alone! Momlogic's relationship expert suggests websites that can help.

Dr. Michelle Golland: These difficult economic times have created unique challenges for us as moms. We who most often are giving the emotional support in our families to our children, husbands or partners, and parents find ourselves feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, depressed, and turning to negative ways of coping such as eating, drinking, and doing drugs. We find ourselves with less money to even reach out and get the therapy and emotional support we need, even if we know we need it or someone in our family desperately needs it as well.

Woman comforting another woman

Below are websites that can help. 

1) Meetup.com provides free support group information on a variety of topics from stress, relationship issues, grief, eating disorders, and many more. It will provide you with information for a group in your local area that you can attend.

2) Ask.com also provides free online support groups. These are groups you can join and do not need to attend in person.

3) Rileyguide.com is a website that focuses on unemployment support and information on networking around job loss and career changes.

4) Psychologytoday.com is a national website that you can search for therapists in your area who are willing to work on a sliding scale.

5) FeedingAmerica.org is a website where you can find local food pantries when you can't stretch your paycheck far enough.

We are all in this together, so please reach out to your friends, and be available to those in your life that may be in need.
