Help us spread hope

1 in 8 people in the world live with a mental health condition. Yet most people who are struggling don’t have access to the help they need. That’s why HelpGuide was founded. Our free online mental health resources are a critical lifeline to millions of people looking for trustworthy information and support. Will you help us continue to be there for them with empowering, evidence-based educational materials and therapeutic tools?

Every dollar makes a difference.

As a free, nonprofit website, we rely on support from our readers. Your tax-deductible gift will help us continue to provide:

  • Practical, motivating resources and tools people can use to help themselves and their loved ones
  • Continuously-updated therapeutic content created and reviewed by mental health professionals
  • Hundreds of in-depth, evidence-based guides on mental health challenges, wellness, relationships, parenting, communication, and healthy aging

Help us reach our goal for the end of the year and we’ll keep providing the evidence-based mental health and wellness resources that millions of people–many without access to mental health care—have come to rely on. Your gift helps ensure that no one is alone on their mental health journey.

from Canada

“I was scared to talk to anyone because they would judge me, but every question I wanted to ask was answered on your website. My mind’s clear now and I’ve realized it’s not just my health I’m jeopardizing, [but also] the people I love. I’m a better man thanks to you.”
