Internet Resources

Recommendations for Use

Online self-help resources can be valuable. While we have reviewed the following sites and found them useful, we cannot affirm the validity and accuracy of all the material on each of these sites. As you evaluate the usefulness and accuracy of mental health information on the Internet, be sure to check the following:

  • When was the information posted? Is it the kind of information that should be regularly updated or revised?
  • How credible is the source of the information? Credible sources include professional journals or associations, universities, government mental health organizations, or health care institutions.

We do not recommend online resources as the only source of help for significant mental health concerns. Online resources are not meant to and cannot replace the specialized training and professional judgment of a trained mental health or health care professional. You should always consult a trained professional before making any decision regarding treatment choice or changes.
