Help Is A Click Away
The Morning Call (Allentown, PA), August 14, 2007
Two excellent resources for reliable mental health information are the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Pennsylvania Psychological Association (PPA). I have been a member of these professional organizations for several years.
APA, with 148,000 members, is the largest association of psychologists worldwide. By accessing their consumer help center at www.APAhelpcenter.org
, you will find lots of mental health information and articles (some have a Spanish translation).
PPA is one of the largest state organizations of psychologists. Its website is www.papsy.org
. The “Public Education and Information” link will connect you with useful mental health information, including a free quarterly “Psychological News You Can Use” e-newsletter to which you can subscribe.
Both APA and PPA provide easily accessible information for the general public. Current issues in the news are addressed and research-based findings are presented. These organizations are good starting points for obtaining educational material on a variety of mental health concerns.
