A guide to directories of available help

Helpseeker.net is a unique way to find already available information that is provided by governmental agencies, community health providers, charities, and so on – but which is unfortunately fragmented and spread around at a range of different locations on the web.

Completely free – driven by a non-profit organization – acclaimed

Best of all, the web portal is completely free for users and service providers. The website is drifted by the non-profit charity company, Hjelp til Hjelp AS, which has nearly ten years of expertise from drifting the similar web portal www.hjelptilhjelp.no. This site is acclaimed in Norway, where it is presented by the national health authority’s official website as a tool for how to find help for mental health problems (see reference here).
