Newburyport, MA (PRWEB) July 25, 2019 — Today Psych Central announced that it has partnered with Psych Hub, innovators in the provision of engaging videos to help explain the complexities of mental health disorders and their treatments. Psych Central will feature Psych Hub’s co-branded videos on important topics like depression, ADHD, bipolar disorder, and more.
Psych Hub’s professionally-vetted videos appear on Psych Central’s website within each disorder’s content area. For instance, when an individual is researching the symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Psych Hub’s video appears within the article to help better illustrate and explain the disorder (https://psychcentral.com/adhd/).
“We’re honored to partner with Psych Hub on this important project,” said Dr. John Grohol, Psy.D., founder and CEO of Psych Central.
“We find it invaluable to reach people through whatever medium they’re most comfortable with. Today, many people prefer video. Psych Hub has done an outstanding job in producing excellent videos with peer-reviewed content and high production values.”
Both Psych Central and Psych Hub hope their partnership helps to elevate the conversation and reduce the stigma, prejudice, and discrimination that all too often is associated with mental illness. Psych Central will also help promote the videos through its 237,000 fans on Facebook and 164,000 followers on Twitter.
“We could not be more excited to partner with Psych Central and open up our entire video library to their learners”, said Marjorie Morrison, President & CEO of Psych Hub. “We both share a unique mission of using free education to start a movement. Together I truly believe we can create a movement around mental health. Breaking stigma starts with education and if we are going to impact the current mental health crisis we have to provide free and credible information to all”.
Psych Central is the Internet’s largest consumer mental health site for online mental health and psychology information, community and support, visited by over 6 million people each month.
