Help Guide

Helpguide’s mission is to help you understand, prevent, and resolve many of life’s challenges. Our goal is to empower you with the knowledge and support you need to take charge of your life and make healthy choices.

Helpguide was launched in 1999, following the suicide of Robert and Jeanne Segal’s daughter, Morgan. We believe that Morgan’s tragedy could have been avoided if she had  access to well-written professional information that gave her a sense of hope and direction. Helpguide is focused on providing free online resources that are motivating, balanced, and ad-free—easy to look at, easy to understand, and focused on information you can use to help yourself.

We are delighted that Helpguide has grown from a small local project to an internationally acclaimed resource that received 30 million visits in 2010.
