Recently there has been a lot of activity by the Ministry of Health in conjunction with the World Mental Health Day which was on 10 October 1998. These activities started on the 5 of September 1998. In line with this, here are some useful sites related to Mental Health.
Probably the most comprehensive site on Mental Health on the Internet. Internet Mental Health is a free encyclopedia of mental health information.
Internet Mental Health ( http://www.mentalhealth.com/ ) is for anyone who has an interest in mental health:
- Mental health professionals
- Patients who want to learn more about their illness
- Friends and families of patients
- Mental health support groups
- Members of the general public who want to learn more about mental health
This site( http://www.mentalhealth.net/) provides you with an easy-to-use, friendly resource in which to access all the mental health topics on the Internet.
The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) ( http://www.nimh.nih.gov/ ) conducts and supports research nationwide on mental illness and mental health, including studies of the brain, behavior, and mental health services. NIMH is a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the principal biomedical and behavioral research agency of the United States Government. NIH is a component of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Another site with numerous resources ( http://www.psychiatry.com/ ). It has also a comprehensive suggested links to other mental health related sites.
The site is designed to provide a comprehensive online source( http://wso.net/assessment/) of information on psychological assessment for consumers and professionals alike. It is divided into two major sections. Although both are geared toward a professional audience, the first section can be of interest to others and provides basic information on psychological assessment and online resources related to psychological assessment (e.g., test publishers, essays, and external links), while the second section is more technical in nature and focuses on providing interpretive guides for major objective and projective measures and provides technical information on issues in assessment.
Exactly what it means,an online depression screening test.
Our own online psychiatric association at http://psychiatry-malaysia.org/html/index.html .
This page is about links to mental health sites mainly in Malaysia by our own Malaysian Psychiatrist from Hospital Bukit Padang, Sabah. It is maintained by Consultant Psychiatrist Dr. Leonard Ashley Oliveiro .
With that I let your "mouse" or your "keyboard" do the "talking".
Till next month, "Happy Surfing".
The links to URL mentioned above are valid at the time of writing (17 October 1998).
