211 - Help and Crisis Referral Lines around the US


For local information and service referrals in the US please also try dialing 211, the local help and crisis referral helpline, especially in or near urban centers. They help make referrals to homeless shelters, transportation, local non-profits and municipal or government resources, and other referrals for non-life-threatening situations. You can also call them for non-crisis local information and questions.

Therapy Resources


Psychology Today provider directory — Psychology Today provides a fairly flexible provider directory where you can see what insurance a provider accepts, their specialties and fields they work in, links to their website, their contact info, etc. Accuracy will depend on whether the provider updates their profile or not, but it's still a helpful resource. Always screen your provider after locating someone who looks good on paper. You need to verify their information (such as whether they still accept your insurance) and interview them to find out whether they're a good fit.

We recommend looking for people who specialize in Trauma or PTSD first, then view their profile and look for whether dissociative disorders are listed in their sub-specialties.



Plural Resources

"Plural" is a large umbrella that includes dissociative identity disorder (DID) and other related dissociative disorders (such as OSDD and P-DID), healthy multiplicity (traumatized plurals who have healed their PTSD/C-PTSD issues and have worked on internal community building to live an intentionally plural life; the recovery model of DID & related disorders), and related issues such as hearing voices (as in some people who hear voices are plural). Many of the resources below are aimed at people with trauma or experiencing distress or needing assistance with DID and related disorders. Other resources are there for those for whom those resources are insufficient or do not work.



https://Kinhost.org — Building Internal Community: selves-help for people with Dissociative Identity Disorder, Dissociative Disorders, and other plural issues. Home page has links to the best starting points on the site.

https://CerberusPlural — Cerberus Plural is a mass media clearing house for plural content in the world. We’ll review the article, film, etc. and let you know what is relevant to plurals, stumbling blocks or stigmatization in the original content, & what content you need to be prepared for.

http://www.intervoiceonline.org — resources for voice-hearers from a standpoint of not cubby-holing or judging the WHY people hear voices. Accepts for example those who hear guides and spirit companions, people who may be experiencing delusions, or people who may be plural. Members may be traumatized or not traumatized; the thing they have in common is hearing voices. They have chapters around the world, and a large annual conference.

 A Tulpamancy Resource Site — everything we don't know (about tulpamancy and tulpas) is on this website, which is to say a lot.
