Amity means friendship and solution means the method or process of solving a problem. 

Alone, it can be very difficult or impossible to overcome certain challenges.  Together, we can achieve anything.  The synergy that comes from teamwork is what makes the world a great place.  Together, as friends, we will overcome even our toughest challenges. 

AmityConnect is a website where you can learn about and manage symptoms that commonly occur after trauma, in depression, as an addict, or in addiction recovery.  

Features of this site include:

  • Reliable information and treatments that work.
  • Tools for screening and tracking your symptoms.
  • Convenient, easy-to-use skills to help you handle stress symptoms.
  • Direct links to support and help.
  • Always with you when you need it.

Together with professional medical treatment, AmityConnect provides you with dependable resources you can trust.  If you have, or think you might have a behavioral health concern, this site is for you.  Family and friends can also learn from this site.  This site is a “self-monitoring” site and therefore, it is not a health care provider. 

NOTE: Behavioral health concerns, including addiction, PTSD, anorexia, depression, and etc, are serious mental health conditions that often require professional evaluation and treatment.  AmityConnect is not intended to replace needed professional care.

The questionnaires used in AmityConnect, the checklists, and other information are reliable and valid self-report measures, but are not intended to replace professional evaluation.

Providing you with facts and self-help skills based on sound research is the goal of AmityConnect.
