While you’re here, please see the Table of Contents of my textbook, The Mental Health Professional and the New Technologies.

This is a complaint about ecological correctness.

But enough about me. Here’s a link to the PSYMEET resource of over 5,700 mental health organizations all over the world indexed by Name, along with their future meetings and events indexed by Location and Date. If you need a place to go or a time to go somewhere for behavioral health education, or networking please take a look. There are also links to other Web pages of interest in psychiatry and psychology.

But first, how about donating your brain?

By the way, are you pregnant? If you are on certain drugs used for depression, bipolar disorder (manic-depression) or epilepsy you are NEEDED FOR A RESEARCH SURVEY. Please click here for the AED Pregnancy Registry at Harvard Medical School.

Not bipolar but been through a depression? If it began before you turned 30, had more than one episode and have a sibling or parent who was depressed (not bipolar) you may be able to participate in the GenRED study.

Have you encountered stigma related to a psychiatric problem? Phone your experience in to the Stigmabuster.

Care to talk publicly about experiences with mental health issues?

Interested in clinical trials?


NAMI Stigmabusters National Coordinator Stella March is the person to email with a report of any instance of discrimination because of brain disorder. People with mental conditions are often teased and psychiatric problems are frequently ridiculed in popular media. For example, NAMI persuaded Nestlé to drop "Loony Jerry, Weird Wally and Psycho Sam" from its product line. To receive Stigma Alerts click HERE.


Patients who want to join clinical trials and clinicians seeking unusual treatments for their patients can tune into the CenterWatch Clinical Trials Listing Service for descriptions of planned research with eligibility requirements and contact information. One can sign up for a free e-mail service that provides individual notification about new trials in a selected geographical and clinical area.


NAMI (the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill) is seeking consumers and families willing to speak with the media about their experiences with “brain disorders.” They have been receiving many requests, particularly about managed care, children’s issues, and the criminal justice system. Call their StoryBank at 703 / 516-7238.


The Harvard Brain Tissue Resource Center especially needs gifts of such organs from people with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder and their relatives, as well as brains from people who don't meet Axis I diagnoses and who have no family history of mental illness. Only 25 brains per year are coming in from people with a psychiatric history. Jot this number down and think about it: 800 / 272-4622.

As an alternative, try the VA-BU-CLF Brain Bank (Veterans Administration, Boston University, Concussion Legacy Foundation).

It's never too late to donate your brain or any other part. Motivational material and actionable steps are available HERE.
