About World of Psychology

World of Psychology is Psych Central’s premier and longest-running blog, focused on the expansive subject that is psychology, human behavior, mental health and illness, and the intersection of technology with all of these things. It is overseen by Dr. John Grohol, and features a regular set of contributors and guest bloggers from many different areas in the field of clinical practice, research and treatment. It features articles from differing viewpoints and perspectives, including those of patients, relationship experts, psychiatrists, policy advocates, and others.

World of Psychology got its start on March 4, 2000 using open source blogging software called Open Journal written by John Grohol. In early 2004, it moved to the 1.x version of the then-fledgling blog platform, WordPress (which it still runs today). Published continuously since 2000, World of Psychology is the Internet’s longest-running psychology & mental health blog.

World of Psychology usually publishes at least 3 times per day, 365 days per year. If you’d like to submit a guest post for consideration, please review our submission guidelines.
