A roundup of new resources, articles, and information on Psych Central.

One Week Left to Submit Your Personal Story

In the vein of Spring and making a new start, I'd like to offer you the opportunity to leave a piece of your past behind. One method many people find therapeutic is to tell their story, the story of them grappling with whatever major mental health issue it is that you grapple with -- depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, ADHD, or the like.

Read about how to submit your story today. Stories are due by April 21, 2006. Thank you and good luck!!

Our Library Continues to Expand

We're continuing our efforts to better expose some of the articles we've long had, but weren't easy to find (and some weren't even available on the site!). We've added dozens new articles -- articles you won't find anywhere else online! Topics range from self-esteem and Parkinson Disease, to learning how to live better and deal with stress. We've also updated our schizophrenia treatment information to reflect the latest research about the effectiveness of schizophrenia medications.

119+ New Internet Resources Added

We've added another 119+ new resources to our Internet resource directory in the past month, which brings us up to indexing over 3,945 unique mental health, support, psychology and relationship resources online.

Some highlights include:

Bodies Under Siege
bus (bodies under siege) is a thriving, close-knit, vibrant community of people who all have one thing in common: self-injury has somehow affected their lives. Most of the members of bus are people who have or still do inflict physical harm on themselves as a way of dealing with overwhelming situations. Although many bus subscribers are trying to stop hurting themselves (and quite a few are SI-free), a desire to stop is not a requirement for membership.

Free searches of national database of mental health providers with unparalleled depth of information including location, payment options (insurance, medicare, medicaid, sliding scale), specialities, age groups and populations served, accessibility (evening hours, home visits), theoretical approach, credentials, languages, etc.

Pain in the Gutt
A support group for those suffering from IBD or IBS. Including Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
