There are many ways you can go about finding more help in improving your self-image. One of your greatest resources is trusted friends, relatives, ministers, and counselors. But sometimes, identifying and reaching out to someone can be difficult. You may want to ask yourself these questions when looking for someone to assist you:
If you can't identify someone to help, or feel uncomfortable asking someone you know for help, you may want to talk to a professional who is trained in counseling. Try contacting your local hospital, university, ministry, or community center to see if they offer counseling or have advisors. Or you may want to look for advice from an accredited psychologist or mental health counselor. Both the American Psychological Association and the American Mental Health Counselors Association are national organizations that have online resources and can recommend counselors in your area. In addition, you may want to contact MTSTCIL for more assistance.
