Dedicated to Morgan Leslie Segal

HelpGuide is dedicated to Morgan Leslie Segal. For six years, she grappled with a condition that started as low self-esteem and worsened into major depression. She stuck with a single therapeutic mode and her prescribed medications even though the combination just made her worse. Finally, in desperation, she committed suicide just after her 29th birthday.

Morgan loved the Internet. If she had access to the wide range of unbiased, motivating resources and self-help tools HelpGuide now provides, we believe her suicide could have been prevented.
