Founded in 1991 by former First Lady Rosalyn Carter, the Mental Health Program works toward two primary goals: to reduce stigma and discrimination against people with mental illnesses and to influence mental health policy in the United States and around the world.
The Mental Help Net website exists to promote online mental health education and provides scientifically accurate and up-to-date coverage of mental health and illness topics. The site's resources take three different forms. We offer detailed and comprehensive coverage of mental health and illness topics (such as Depression, ADHD, and Personality Disorders) in our numerous topic centers. We regularly publish original blogs, podcasts, articles and advice columns which are linked from the Mental Help Net homepage. Finally, we offer a Mental Health Support Community. Online since 1995, Mental Help Net has been the recipient of many awards and citations. Our service is freely available and intended for both laypeople and professionals.
The National Mental Health Information Center was developed for users of mental health services and their families, the general public, policy makers, providers, and the media. Includes information on mental health programs, mental health topics, a newsroom, and links to publications and other resources.
