Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder

ADHD is a difficult disorder to cope with, but plenty of people have been writing and developing tools to help those who have the disorder or know others that do. Take a look at these websites, articles, books, and tools that specifically attend to attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder.

Dermatillomania

Dermatillomania is a skin-picking disorder related to and sometimes diagnosed as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Only recently, though, has the DSM-5®—an authority on mental health diagnoses by the American Psychiatric Association—classified it separately from OCD. See this page for websites, articles, books, and tools that focus on the condition and its related disorders.

Major Depressive Disorder

Major depressive disorder—most commonly referred to simply as “depression”—is a widespread condition that negatively affects a person’s physical, mental, and emotional health. It can be debilitating, but with professional help and a proactive approach to living with depression, things can get better. Review these websites, articles, books, and tools for information that may benefit you or someone you know who deals with this disorder.

General Mental Health

Learning that you or a loved one has a mental health disorder can be troubling, surprising, isolating, validating, and/or any number of additional adjectives. With a diagnosis, however, a clearer direction toward improving life with the disorder can be found. The websites, articles, books, and tools found on this page are meant to help initiate discussion on and the discovery of better mental health.
