Resources & Referrals

Although AFSP is not able to recommend individual therapists, the following sources may help you find a local mental health professional:

  • Ask your doctor for a recommendation
  • Contact the departments of psychiatry, psychology, or social work at your local university or hospital
  • Use the American Psychological Association’s locator service at locator.apa.org or 1-800-964-2000.
  • Contact The American Psychiatric Association’s referral service at apa@psych.org or call 1-888-357-7924 and press 0 to speak with a customer service representative
  • Contact the National Association of Social Workers’ referral service at naswdc.org or helppro.com/HP/BasicSearch.aspx
  • If you are a veteran, contact Veterans Affairs at mentalhealth.va.gov/gethelp.asp
  • The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration maintains lists of therapists as well as treatment centers at store.samhsa.gov/mhlocator
  • For low-cost options, visit the Mental Health America website at nmha.org/go/help or call 1-800-969-6642
  • If you have insurance coverage, you can contact your insurance carrier for in-network referrals
  • If you attend a suicide bereavement support group, you could ask the facilitator and/or other group members for recommendations
  • Speak with your local school guidance department
  • Google “Depression Research Center” together with the name of your city or local university

“Finding a Mental Health Professional: A Personal Guide,” created by the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance and available at dbsalliance.org/pdfs/finding.pdf, contains useful guidance about questions to ask prospective therapists. Bear in mind that not every therapist will necessarily be the right fit for you, so trust your instinct. If it doesn’t feel right after one or two appointments discuss your concerns, and if they are not addressed consider trying someone else.
