We also have hand-selected several bloggers to share their graduate school experiences with you. Our bloggers include current graduate students, a post doc and fellow, and an academic consultant to provide you with diverse perspectives from across the graduate school spectrum.

The PhD forums are another free resource we came up with to help connect past, current, and future grad students, providing you with an outlet to share your experiences and support one another. We’re also continuing to develop new tools to make your life a little easier (just remember to create a free account on our PhD People page to have full access to the tools!). For example, undergraduate and graduate students alike could benefit from submitting a question to Ask the PhDs, a Q&A column answered by faculty and industry PhDs about all facets of life in academia. Those who have completed grad school will especially want to check out our MyCV tool, which can eliminate the guesswork of formatting your curriculum vitae and increase your exposure by providing you with your personalized URL.

We could go on, but you probably get the idea: PhDStudent is a collection of diverse resources all packed into one site. We’re continually adding new articles and tools to stay up-to-date on the latest hot topics and trends in academia, so hopefully you’ve found what you’ve been looking for. Thanks for visiting, and see you around in the forums!

No Kidding? Me Too!

No Kidding?  Me Too!

Throughout human history, actors have made their living as entertainers – on stage, the big screen, small screen, even the computer screen. During our journeys, we sometimes encounter roles where the characters exhibit mental issues. Just a quick thought to the most memorable moments in movies and on television over the last century will provide you with many depictions of individuals exhibiting mental illness — almost all encountering seemingly insurmountable barriers.

As artists, what we learn as we become more knowledgeable about mental illness — its symptoms, diagnosis and treatment — is these barriers are not insurmountable and by stigmatizing those with mental illness, we are doing a grave injustice to them, ourselves and all of society.

Our goal is to educate the public about the wonderful possibilities that exist when we break down the societal barriers which hold us all back because we treat those afflicted with mental illness differently — we label them and isolate them. What we passionately want to accomplish is to relieve the weight of millions of people who suffer this isolation.

Autism Society

Autism Society

Since 1965, the Autism Society has been a leader in serving people with autism, their families and professionals. We provide the most comprehensive Information and Referral service via our toll-free number, 1-800-3AUTISM, and the largest online referral database, AutismSource.
The Autism Society is the home of the Autism Awareness Puzzle Ribbon, one of the most recognizable cause-related symbols, and founded National Autism Awareness Month, which helps focus attention on autism in April of every year. The Autism Society’s 107 affiliates nationwide are incubators for local programs such as Safe and Sound, camps, respite care and social skills events.
The Autism Society supports research that will help families living with autism. Today, 67 individuals will be diagnosed with autism, and their families have no clear path for treating the symptoms of this medical condition. For this reason, the Autism Society has launched research initiatives to look into early diagnosis and early intervention, the environmental triggers of autism, environmental factors that exacerbate health conditions, and, most importantly, a comprehensive, coordinated treatment-guided research initiative.
For over 40 years, the Autism Society has hosted the largest conference on autism spectrum disorders each July.

Center for Deployment Psychology

Center for Deployment Psychology

In honor of those of you who served our country and in honor of the United States Veterans Day, November 11th, I have decided to post this very awesome resource–the Center for Deployment Psychology.

The CDP mission is to prepare health care professionals to better meet the deployment-related emotional and psychological needs of military personnel and their families. More than two million service members have deployed during the conflicts overseas, including many who have deployed multiple times. With these increased deployments, service members and their families undergo increased stress and psychological health challenges.

To meet its mission, CDP trains health care professionals through live presentations, online learning resources, ongoing consultation and state-of-the-art education, coordinating activities across a nationwide network of training sites at 11 military medical centers.
