At FRC, we fundamentally believe prevention works, treatment is effective, and people recover. Here are some resources we recommend that might be helpful regardless of where you or your loved one are at in your recovery journey.

Mental health conditions are real, common, and treatable. Taking a mental health screening is a quick and easy way to determine whether you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition. Whether you’re taking the screening for yourself or for your loved one, Mental Health America has screening tools to help identify anxiety, depression, bipolar, psychosis, eating disorders, PTSD, and addiction.
