There simply are not enough resources today for everyone with a mental illness who needs help. It’s a crisis situation and the numbers are growing.

Clubhouses powerfully demonstrate that people with mental illness can and do lead productive, happy lives. Each Clubhouse we open reaches +/- 500 people in need!  Clubhouse International has succeeded in creating something that didn’t exist before: A worldwide community that is changing the world of mental health. Through over 320 local Clubhouses around the world, we offer people living with mental illness opportunities for friendship, employment, housing, education and access to medical and psychiatric services in a single caring and safe environment – so they can recover and fully participate as valued and respected members of society.

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!

What Makes Them Click–The Brain Lady

From Susan Weinschenk:  “If you’ve ever eavesdropped on a conversation in a country where you did not speak the language, you might have been surprised to find yourself following along and picking up the feeling of the conversation even though you didn’t understand any of the words or literal meaning. This is an entire field of research, and it’s called paralinguistics. It refers to vocal communication that is separate from the words that are spoken.

Think about this for a minute. You can say, “Sure, I’ll go with you to the store” in many different ways. You can say it with a lot of enthusiasm, with sarcasm, or with boredom. The way you say the sentence conveys as much meaning—or more—as the words themselves.”

Read more about Susan’s blog and also learn how to be able to better communicate and get your thoughts and feelings across with others.
