Mark Dombeck (director at Mental Help Net) contacted me regarding his site. Online since 1995, Mental Help net has thousands of articles on numerous topics in mental health/illness, wellness, life events and lifespan development, divided into topic centers. In addition the site also provides book reviews, daily updated health news, blogs, podcasts, question and answer service and a therapist directory. Managed by clinical psychologists, the site promotes empirically supported therapies while also attempting to cover “the full spectrum of appropriate treatments”. Notable on the site is the “Wise Counsel Podcast” which is an interview series with psychotherapy luminaries (e.g., Irvin Yalom, David Barlow).
