Half Dome from the Yosemite Valley floor


The resources below contain more information that might help you navigate the complex world of mental health. With the definitions section, I have tried to clarify some confusing aspects of the world of psychology, like the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist. In the common questions section, I have tried to answer some of the how-to types of questions around how to use your insurance and internet pharmacies. The links section will guide you to the websites of various professional organizations that have a lot of useful information about diagnoses, other resources, and often a way to find a local clinician. And finally, I have also included a books section because I love books and a good book can clarify a lot.
