Mental Health

General (see also entry for National Institutes of Health)

Psychoses, e.g., Schizophrenia
Schizophrenia is complicated and fascinating. If you type "schizophrenia" into a search engine you will get well over 1,000,000 hits. Many will have helpful information so here are a few starting points.

  • An extensive page with some amazing chat rooms and blogs: http://www.schizophrenia.com
  • If that is the standard page, here is the anti-thesis. It is a deeply anti-psychiatry and frequently anti-medicine page. Approach its conclusions with a scientific and skeptical mind - and be aware that a lot of patients are reading this page. Has some interesting links: http://www.successfulschizophrenia.org
  • Prevention and Early Intervention Program for Psychoses - I have not explored this page thoroughly but the pieces I have read look helpful. It is sponsored by the London ( Ontario ) Health Sciences Centre. (currently, summer 2013, being rebuilt): http://www.pepp.ca/index.html

Grief and Mood Disorders, e.g., Depression

Use, Abuse and Addictions (Dependencies)

National Institutes of Health

While many readers think of the NIH as for physicians and researchers, these home pages for each institute also contain valuable educational material for patients, not the least of which is calls for participation in clinical trials.
