Resources

The following organizations provide information and resources for mental illness:

Severe Anxiety
Overcoming Social Phobia One Step At A Time
A well-written site about Social Phobia, resources for help, advice for dealing with the illness, and links to many other sites. “Severe social anxiety is one of the most difficult disorders to overcome. It can literally destroy your life in a matter of months. People do no realize that their is no real treatment to rid yourself of social anxiety, sure there is medication that is available through your family doctor. But how on earth does someone with severe social anxiety get this medication when their number one fear is in social interaction?”
