And yet, love does not win in a vacuum. And love does not win alone.
Love ALONE may not be enough to support a struggling marriage. Love ALONE may not be enough to help a son or daughter struggling with mental illness. Love ALONE may not be enough to save a family member struggling with addiction.
Even love needs help, hope and information.

If you are looking for help, hope and information to add to your love- here are a few ways:
1) talk to a trusted friend 2) talk to your pastor or spiritual counsel 3) talk to your primary care physician or child's pediatrician 4) reach out to your local NAMI chapter 5) If you have insurance, you can call the number on the back of your card to identify a provider in your area 6) Reach out to your employee assistance program
