While not a substitute for professional mental healthcare and therapy, I have found the Therapy in a Nutshell channel on YouTube to personally be really helpful if I’m having an off day or moment, or just need some longterm strategies to help keep my mental health in a better place. Emma McAdam who runs it is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and there are issue-specific playlists on their channel as well
