RESOURCES

Doming Out, in honor of John Cleaver Kelly, documents society’s response to mental illness. We share journeys to the dark side of mental health to understand the light we can be through recovery. Through this conversation we aim to help end the stigma of mental illness, but we understand our limitations as we are not medical professionals.

I hope this list, combined with those compiled by the National Institute of Mental Health and HelpGuide.org can assist in finding the correct help and provide emergency care in specific situations.

Huge credit to Paul Gilmartin who hosts The Mental Illness Happy Hour for initially publishing the list. He’s been a big inspiration of ours throughout this journey.
