mentalhealth.govOur own beloved DocJohn is currently at the Mental Health Conference in Washington, DC.  President Obama and Vice President Biden will be hosting the conference to hopefully create a new awareness of mental health issues.

The website included for this conference will enable you to watch the conference live; get help for others, yourself, and watch some videos on recovery.

There is also a newsroom, a myths and facts section–which is vital for everyone to check out–and what to look for in many disorders in mental health issues.

Psych Web

psych webWelcome to Psych Web written by Dr. Russ Dewey! This web site contains APA Style Resources, a couple of full-length classics in psychology:  Sigmund Freud’s Interpretation of Dreams and William James’ Varieties of Religious Experiences; and Psych Web includes Tip Sheets for Psychology students.

There is even a 725 page Introduction to Psychology textbook located on site, free of charge to read and print!  This site has many informative and helpful links that I still have yet to mention, but as you can see, it is well worth a visit!

Finally, to top it all off, there are a few Self-Help Resources listed, from Abuse:  Physical and Sexual to Violent Behavior.

 

General Psychology Youtube Lectures by Professor John Kihlstrom

UC Berkely Youtube Lectures by Professor John Kihlstrom.  Videos 1-25.  Informative for the person who is interested in psychology or may want to research more about it from a highly recommended school.  This is an introductory program, but can be a refresher program for some people as well.

Emergency Mental Health Educational Manual

This manual is written by the University of British Columbia, however; there are many facets here that will provide useful to those of us in the States. Mostly interesting to the the common layperson who is interested in psychology/psychiatry or the student, this manual is a well-thought out guide to how to help others when help is needed right now.

APA: This is Psychology

These brief videos are intended to educate the general public about the science of psychology and to illustrate how psychological research can be applied to a broad range of issues and challenges. They are part of an expanded APA public education campaign to increase people’s understanding and appreciation of psychological science. We are particularly excited about their potential for use as part of secondary school psychology and other science programs.

The first release includes an introduction, an episode on bullying, and an episode on young children’s mental health. We hope you find them interesting and informative. Feel free to link to these videos from your professional websites. APA will be linking to them on our Facebook and LinkedIn pages.

Psychology Lectures of Alan W. Lanning

This is a nice collection of lectures on introductory psychology.

These lectures review and expand on the material in introductory psychology. They are organized into fifteen topical areas that correspond closely within introductory psychology.

You must have the latest version of the QuickTime plug-in installed in your browser to view the slides, but it is well worth it.
