Links: General mental health sites
Websites with a broad coverage of mental health concerns
This small set of links gives you access to a very large world of information. In many ways, this is the Internet at its best!
Special note: Resources preceded by "‡"are considered especially useful for site visitors who are not mental health professionals.
- ‡ American Psychological Association - A premier site for professional psychologists and psychotherapists, it is also an excellent source of information for non-professionals - although you may have to browse selectively.
- ‡ Encyclopedia of Psychology - An ongoing project of the Department of Psychology, Jacksonville State University (Jacksonville, Alabama, USA), this is a "portal" to many other sites.
- ‡ Mental Health America - (formerly the "National Mental Health Association") A major national association of professionals and laypersons interested in supporting mental health in a wide range of ways. Emphasizes education and advocacy for more attention to public mental issues.
- ‡ National Institute of Mental Health (USA) - "Mental Health Topics" - High quality information, from the major source of research funding in mental health.
- ‡ National Institute of Mental Health Publications - Authoritative, public-domain brief and moderate length free and downloadable publications for the general public. Some are in Spanish.
- ‡ National Mental Health Information Center - This Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) website provides information about mental health services, policies, and providers. It also has publications for download.
- ‡ Internet Mental Health - Wide coverage of many aspects of mental illness and health. Information quality is a bit variable (discussion of treatment options is not always well balanced), but there's a lot of value here.
- ‡ Psych Central - A very large collection of resources, managed by a pioneer in Internet-facilitated mental health education. The breadth of coverage here is exceptional.
