I reviewed this site for approximately 2 hours. I browsed the website using some
of the links on the home page. For each topic I chose it gave a brief synopsis
of the subject, links to other information on the site regarding the subject,
press releases and book reviews relevant to the subject. I also used the site's
built-in search engine and found it to be very useful in identifying all
articles on a particular topic within the site. The forum and bulletin board
sections were easy to use and a great place to chat with others about a plethora
of topics including: depression, PSTD, bipolar, stress and many more.

The quality of the website's content was excellent, in fact it won a
best of web Award this past summer. I think the availability of professional
articles, research studies and open forums provides educators and students with
a good mixture of materials. I read several of the articles on schizophrenia and
found them to be accurate and thorough.

Technical Remarks:

The website was very easy to navigate, I was able to quickly find information on
any mental health topic I searched for.

Well, I reviewed the material in its entirety.I spent 15 minutes browing the
website.The materials shown in the website are informative but not well put
togehter.I really don't think that first time users would find this site user

Technical Remarks:

The website itself could use a better webmaster.

I found this site to be very helpful. I especially like the pharmacology
resources. This site explains the drugs and all side effects etc. It also has
an ask the pharmacist area.
