Mental Health Resources

September 30th, 2013

October 6th – 12th is National Mental Health Awareness Week, a yearly effort by the National Alliance on Mental Illness to foster discussion and understanding for people with mental illnesses.  They focus on grassroots efforts and community-level events to spread awareness, and the local NAMI organization has events planned for Richmond.

But what if you want to dig deeper?  As always, the library is a great source for high-quality information.  From major databases like ProQuest Psychology and PsycInfo to the National Institute of Health’s PubMed Central, we have a staggering number of articles on mental illness and health.  And if books are more your thing, databases like eBrary contain dozens of titles like:

Empowering People with Severe Mental Illness: A Practical Guide by Donald Linhorst

First Person Accounts of Mental Illness and Recovery by Craig Winston LeCroy

Help Yourself towards Mental Health by Cortenay Young

Introducing Mental Health: A Practical Guide by Caroline Kinsella

Learning about Mental Health Practice by Theo Stickley

Additionally, all of our other databases that deal with psychology can be found here.  And if you need any help, don’t hesitate to contact us at iueref@iue.edu!
