To subscribe: go to the above URL.

Because of the confidential and personal nature of the matters that are likely to be discussed, membership in the list is limited to those who are in that category, and to others who may be able to help them. All subscriptions must therefore have the approval of the list owner/moderator.  New as of July 2001.
