It’s that time of the year again, when we pull together our top picks for mental health and psychology stories in the news in the past year. There’s no magic to our choices, we’re just looking for stories that you believe had the biggest positive or negative impact in this area. For instance, last year the passage of the mental health parity law here in the U.S. was the biggest mental health news story of 2008. One example for this year might’ve been the debate we had surrounding what I thought was a pretty sensible law about postpartum depression. You can take a look at last year’s Year in Review to get a feel for what we’re looking for here.

Note your top picks in the comments and we’ll review those and the ones on our own list to come up with our big list for the year. If you had a favorite blog entry from the past year, we’d love to hear about that too in the comments!

The Year in Review will be published in December.
