These people are a resource society should try and tap into. But without a diploma or something equivalent, how do you know who these people are? Trial and error?

Yes, I was kinda thinking out loud. I think a social worker would do the job well, if they had some specific training in mental health/addictions. I am a social worker, and have seen some real 'apples' out there trying to take peoples money for "therapy"...say people get a psych degree, or whatever degree, and go masking, offering "therapy". I was looking for some personal help during the pandemic, online, and didn't have $$$$ loot to get professional psychotherapy. What I found was...well, people with some pretty funky diploma titles masquerading as 'therapists'. So, the online world is...just...scary!

So, yes, best to be looking for some type of professional, even if you don't have a lot of money, there are clinical/practical psychologists and social workers, human service workers, who are usually registered with someone...and will offer group and/or individual therapy. That last part about being registered, usually is what you want to look for. If not, have a social work/social service work degree; applied psych degree..etc..from a recognizable college/university.

So...that's my take...
