Psychology Web Pointer                     Professional & Other Web Sites

Associate Editor: Ross Powell <>

This Pointer will help you find the information you need on the World
Wide Web (WWW).  It is provided as a public service.  It is by no means
meant to be a complete listing of all WWW pages associated with mental
health.  It is, however, kept updated with a listing of what I consider
to be some of the more comprehensive and helpful pages around the world.

It is organized around topic areas, listed in alphabetical order and
divided into two major categories: General Resources and Professional
Resources. Sites that I believe don't fall neatly into either category
are listed under both. Other resource lists, in case you haven't found
what you need here, are listed in a third category at the end.   
are listed under both. Other resource lists, in case you haven't found
what you need here, are listed in a third category at the end.

     > All resources listed in this file have been personally
       reviewed by myself and I have found them to be useful
       and accurate in their information.
     > I generally do not list commercial resources selling or
       promoting products unless I feel that that resource
       covers an area not otherwise covered on the Web.

 * = New to this version  ** = Among the best   (c) = Commercial site
  Check out Dr. GROHOL's Mental Health Page, your
  personalized index for mental health, psychology and
  support resources on the Internet. (Including this one!)
