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.

It was founded in 1987 in response to the frustration and sense of isolation experienced by parents and their children with attention deficit disorders. On its Web site, CHADD uses fact sheets, a list of frequently asked questions, and news releases to provide up-to-date information on diagnosis and treatment as well as on other issues, such as the legal rights of children with the disorder.
