There are many resources in Guilford County to help people build, maintain, and strengthen their relationships and families! However, navigating those resources can be overwhelming. This page provides information about ways to locate professionals and organizations in our community that provide support to individuals and families. First, HRI offers the “Find Help Fridays” social media series to highlight local organizations, professionals, and resources where Guilford County residents can seek help for various relational and family challenges. In addition, we share information about United Way’s 2-1-1 resource. At the bottom of the page, you will find information about databases to search for local counselors or therapists.
Find Help Fridays
The Healthy Relationships Initiative’s “Courage to Ask” social marketing campaign is designed to reduce the barriers that make it more difficult for people in Guilford County to seek help for the relationship and family problems and challenges they face. Two of the main barriers are (1) not knowing what services are available or how to access them and (2) facing stigma about admitting to having problems or needing help.
