Reminder:  off-campus passwords are on your Utility Period Canvas Page.   Some have changed since last year.

Websites and Organizations

Hover over the black "i"  icon for more information about a site.

Government Sites

Note: The reports and data that you find on .gov websites is pretty trustworthy, however, the content visible on government sites can be subject to the whim of the administration.

Psychiatry & Mental Health Organizations

BEWARE of website-length advertisements for specific treatments, treatment centers, or programs.  While these could have good information, it is better to track that information to its original source.

BEWARE of sites and posts attempting to prey on the vulnerable. There's nothing stopping people from trying to take advantage of people dealing with mental health issues online.

Disorder Specific Sites and Foundations

Note: Not all non-profit (.org) sites are created equally. ".org"  only means the site owners are, traditionally, not a profit-based company, it is not an indicator of credibility. Use the databases and NIH/NIMH/NINDS/SAMHA/APA sources first.

As you are evaluating the information a foundation selects to appear on its site, be diligent in looking for information about the various "Foundations" outside of the organization's page: 

  • Foundations can have a bias or slant as to which treatments, causes, etc. for the disorder they represent, and this may affect what data they share and how they choose to share it. 
  • Check to see who or what provides funding for non-profits:  (ads? corporate donations? donations from people?)
  • What do other reputable organizations say about the foundation?
