What kinds of questions can be answered?

Questions about the week's topic or guests, such as symptoms, personal experience, or treatment approaches are appropriate. Example: "Does it make things worse to drink if a person is depressed, or does it help them because they can forget about their problems?"

What kinds of questions cannot be answered?

Questions of a personal nature will not be responded to on this live television show. Example: "My 14 year old daughter just ran away from home. What should I do?"

Which questions get answered on the show?

Our co-hosts will be reviewing our viewer's questions with 2 goals in mind: creating an informative topic-related show and answering our viewers questions. While we will do our best to include as many as we can, please keep in mind that each question that is sent to us may not get directly answered.

This forum is not intended to resolve a crisis you are having right now. If you are having a crisis, call HDC's crisis line at 1-800-634-8775.
