Psychiatric Services offers a monthly listing of mental-health-related Web sites and other sites of interest. The list changes monthly as new sites are identified, existing sites add new features, and different categories of sites are included. We'd like maintaining the list to be an interactive process, so tell us about your favorite sites or what you'd like to be able to find on the Web. You can reach us by e-mail at psjournal@psych.org.

Its purpose is to give consumers a forum for mutual support for independent living and to improve the quality of life for people with mental illness and their families. The articles are written by consumers, family members, and professionals and examine a range of mental health topics, such as stigma, parity, benefits, schizophrenia and violence, public policy, and legislative initiatives. Two columns—Ask the Doctor and Ask the Pharmacist—answer consumers' questions. The Internet edition, which is searchable by keyword, contains much of the contents of the hard-copy version and includes back issues and archived articles arranged by subject category.
