opinions which will then be used to direct our future development.
AMIGOS IS NOT...
Although Amigos has been created in conjunction
with a professional psychologist/counselor, Amigos is not intended to
provide treatment of any kind. Amigos is experimental in nature. It
is not intended to substitute for the kind of relationships offered
in counseling. But, instead, to provide you with information which may
prompt you to look for new sources of additional help. The use of a
website for information is not correlated with any traditional service
or counseling. Amigos is not meant to replace face to face counseling
If you want to connect with other people online,
we have created a short list of places where other students and teachers
can be found called "Keypals,
Chats, and links to the Online Community." We believe that Amigos
is a place where you can express yourself and listen to others who are
facing the same struggles and challenges. We, at Amigos, hope that you
will find this website supportive, educational, informational, and uplifting.
