Minds on the Edge

Minds on the edgeMINDS ON THE EDGE: Facing Mental Illness is a multi-platform media project that explores severe mental illness in America.

The centerpiece of the project was a television program that aired on PBS stations in October 2009. This video component was part of a national initiative that includes extensive web content with tools for civic engagement, active social media on Facebook and Twitter, and an ambitious strategy to engage citizens, professionals in many fields, and policy makers at all levels of government. The goal was to advance consensus about how to improve the kinds of support and treatment available for people with mental illness.

Animal Hoarding: An In-Depth Look At The Phenomenon

animal hoardingMany times animals need good homes.  They are often brought into a home where a person wants to take good care of them, feed them, water them and make sure their every need is taken care of.  However; there are certain people whose idea of taking care of animals, while meaning to be a good provider of animal security, ends up being one of animal destruction and unneeded cruelty.  These unfortunate few do not mean to harm these animals, and actually mean to help the pets they so lovingly bring into their homes–matter of fact, they normally know them by their names or by the dates the brought them in or where they found them or what shelter they got them from.

How do these people (and these animals) get help that they desperately need?  What is the most important thing to treat first–is it to get the animals out, then treat the animal hoarder or is it to treat the hoarder while helping the animals then help get the animals out?

Animal Hoarding:  An In-Depth Look At The Phenomenon helps us to understand this issue.  There are, according to Dr. Patronek, on the website, 1500 new cases every year.  On this website, you will see:

What is Psychology

At “What is Psychology (WIP) we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn about the fascinating ways in which the human mind works.

As such, WIP was created in order to bring a simple, fun and at times whimsical approach to the world of Psychology. WIP looks at Psychology and psychological applications in everyday life, and reports on areas of the world that are often overlooked by prominent researchers. At times some of us get so bogged down with sounding smart that we completely lose the attention and interest of our readers (you know who you are!). Our goal at WIP is to present the facts in such a way that our readers continue to enjoy reading, watching and learning about this wonderful science.

WIP is a WIP (work in progress). If you wish to support the work we do, then you can help us build by submitting an article and sharing your knowledge.
