About this site
This site is a place where you can find useful, practical and important information about emotions and life. It contains information about emotional intelligence, some tools and resources, and some new ideas.
The EQI.org site acknowledges the pain and problems in the world, but offers young and old a new direction. It offers encouragement and emotional support. It let's those who feel pain and frustration know they are not alone and are not crazy. A special focus of this site is to provide emotional support to young people who are depressed and are thinking of ending their lives. We believe this site speaks with the most realistic authority on teen depression and suicide. Our expertise comes from countless hours of first-hand communication with teens from many countries.
Our site is helping create a vision of a world which is more livable for children and sensitive people.
EQI.org is also for parents, teachers, educators, psychologists, therapists, attorneys, social workers and school counselors. It is for anyone who wants practical knowledge and resources to help others develop their emotional intelligence and emotional skills. The founder of the site, Steve Hein, was born and raised in the USA but has been traveling around the world since 1997. He and his partner now live in Uruguay.
Thank you for visiting.
Personal note from Steve
Nov 14 2013
Recently I was thinking a lot about suicide and how much or how little I felt valued by my family and by others in general. I had some contact with some family members / relatives. I realized I am not going to get the emotional support I need from them. I also realized I still very much need emotional support. So if you are feeling supportive, I would apprecaite a note from you. You can write to eqi.org2 at gmx.com Thanks Steve -
Also a big thanks and hug to MS who has been nearly a life-saver to me since she started writing me after I made a plea for emotional support a couple of weeks ago.
update nov 29 - thanks to those who have written me. here is a reply to one person in which i wrote a lot...
