(ED NOTE: Stumbled across this fantastic mental health resource site, while trying to learn Facebook, excuse me I am old.  At any rate, this comprehensive website has links to all major and minor psychiatric disorders, to drugs, to many support forums, and just about any info one would like in the field of Mental Health.  It is truly a “Psych Central”.  If you have a psych problem, or have a family member with a psych problem, you have a place to go on the net…..

The following page is taken right from their website.

About Psych Central


Psych Central is the Internet’s largest and oldest independent mental health social network. Since 1995, it has been run by mental health professionals offering reliable, trusted information and over 200 support groups to consumers. We are today’s modern voice for mental health information, emotional support and advocacy. With the broadest online reach and recognition of any mental health network today, we touch the lives of over 4 million people around the world every month.

New York Times quotePsych Central has its roots in indexing online support groups, starting in the summer of 1991. Launched in January 1995 as Psych Central: John Grohol’s Mental Health Page, our website was an instant hit from the beginning with its directory of online mental health resources and the first lists of symptoms for mental disorders published online. Within the first 3 months, it received Point’s prestigious Top 5% of the Web award, as well as a fair amount of media attention in the ensuing years. We are consistently rated as one of the top mental health resources online today.

Psych Central is overseen by Dr. Grohol and a staff of contributing editors. We provide mental health information as well as annotated guides to the most useful online resources today in mental health, psychology, social work, and psychiatry. We also developed the popular Sanity Score, a free online mental health screening test. The Psych Central Network includes dozens of topic-oriented blogs, two online communities (our forums and NeuroTalk), curation of the This Emotional Life social media community, PsychSplash and Metanoia(home of the Internet’s first suicide support page, Read This First).
