If you are interested in submitting an idea for a Fact Sheet not included above please contact David Teisler with details!

The Fact Sheets are produced as part of team partnership. An expert or experts in the field being discussed drafts text to cover elements of the disorder: what's it like, what problems occur because of it, what can be done to help the person, and how likely is it that the person's life might improve. It goes through a review process with other therapists plus a professional editor during which time we check for facts, make sure that pertinent information is there, and, sometimes, rewrite it so that it is accessible to the broadest possible audience.
