Boston-Area-Based Site Helps Break Down Stigma Associated with Mental

Health Concerns

NEWBURYPORT, Mass., June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Psych Central(R) (http://www.PsychCentral.com) is currently being recognized on TIME.com as one of the best Web Sites in 2008 for its top mental health content and social media tools. TIME.com cites Psych Central's simple quizzes, "Ask the Therapist" area, and prescription rating sections as reasons for inclusion on its list of "2008 picks for the best the Web has to offer."

"We're honored by this distinction," said Dr. John Grohol, Psy.D., founder and publisher of Psych Central. "It reaffirms our commitment to providing people with trusted mental health information to help reduce the stigma historically associated with these kinds of concerns."

Psych Central offers an array of in-depth content from news, book reviews, resource links, clinical trial overviews, and quizzes. From bipolar disorder to sexual disorders, Psych Central is continually building upon its more than 13 years of serving the online community.

"It also shows the power of self-help, as the thousands of members of our support groups can attest," Dr. Grohol continues. "You don't have to suffer alone with depression or anxiety or any other concern. Others are online in similar situations and understand the issues you're working through. We simply help make that connection possible in as friendly and constructive an environment as possible."

Each month more than 650,000 people visit Psych Central to connect with others, read about various mental health concerns, take assessment quizzes, and more.

Sanity Score(TM), a mental health and wellness test developed by Psych Central, provides a numerical rating and graphical result of the state of an individual's mental health. The test has been taken by more than 50,000 people and continually generates feedback lauding its accuracy.
