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.
Site creators believe that if she had access to the wide range of unbiased, motivating resources and self-help tools HelpGuide now provides, her suicide could have been prevented.
