This site has a wide variety of resources, links and articles. There is an index of disorders that includes specific information on diagnosis, treatment, research and news on many subjects. I especially liked the question and answer session which was very thorough. I located the site while searching for information on bipolar disorder, and I recommend the article "Treatment of Bipolar Disorders: A Guide for Patients and Families" by D. Kahn, M.D.,R. Ross, M.A., D. Printz, M.D., and G. Sachs, M.D.
Mental Health Source is an excellent site to visit whether you are a person seeking information on a mental issue that you or a family member may be effected by, or if you are a psychology student searching for information for a research paper.
The site has a well organized, user friendly home page where you are able to click on the topic of your choice. For example, if you were interested in gathering data on eating disorders you would simply click on the topic found in the A through Z list, which would lead you to a myriad of other sources to choose from regarding your subject--from self-help groups to articles to self quizzes.
I spent approximately two hours (on two separate log-ons) exploring the resources accessed from the Mental Health Source, and I will have to say I didn't even scratch the surface on what they had to offer.
From what I gathered thus far, I feel the majority of the links offered up-to-date, accurate information which would be valuable to both student and faculty.
ANRED, for example, is an excellent source to visit when seeking information on eating disorders. Definitions, symptoms, diagnostic criteria, and treatment programs are explained thoroughly, and without intimidating medical verbiage. I would recommend this site to anyone that felt they had an eating disorder, or a student who was gathering data for an assignment on anorexia nervosa, bulimia, or eating dysfunctions, in general.
In summary, Mental Health Source has a wealth of knowledge available at your fingertips.
Most sites accessed from the Mental Health Source loaded quickly without error; however,
I did experience a bit of difficulty when visiting S.C.a.R.E.D. It did not load easily, and the text was rather jumpy. Since I had no other problems accessing the other links, I don't feel the problem was with my ISP.

I spend about an hour reviewing this site. It is a great site. It has information on a lot of different disorders, links to many resources and continuing education. It is a great resource for research paper.
The site is very easy to navigate.
