How the Website Works
This website has been designed with you in mind. Based on
interviews with people with serious mental illness, family members, and professionals,

also has a button at the tope of the page.
The amount of information people wanted access to was great,
and somewhat complex. To help you find what you need, the main page

sense. If you put your mouse over one of these categories, you will
see a set of choices that will allow you to pick one or more subchoices.

series of different ways of interacting. When this is the case, your
choices will be shown as buttons on the left of the screen.

will get darker to remind you that you have been there.
