San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) March 16, 2012
HealthyPlace.com re-launches its consumer mental health information site, the largest in the U.S., with a new relaxing design and feel. The new look allows those with mental health disorders, and their loved ones, to quickly locate specific information on the basics of each disorder, including information on mental health treatment options and different recovery issues associated with them.
The new site features a comprehensive content update of six major mental health disorders: addictions, ADHD, anxiety and panic disorders, bipolar disorder, depression, and eating disorders. The site’s popular free online Psychological Tests area includes new and updated testing tools for people with concerns that they, or a loved one, might be living with the symptoms of a psychological disorder. The online Mood Journal now includes a feature allowing users to share their journal entries with a psychiatrist, psychologist, or other mental health professional. New bloggers were added to cover mental health disorders in the areas of schizophrenia, anxiety, and depression. Site visitors can also view the live activity feed of HealthyPlace.com social media sites like Twitter and Facebook via newly integrated social media widgets.
Trusted Mental Health Information and Support
One in 4 Americans will develop a serious mental health disorder in their lifetime, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. HealthyPlace.com is a one-stop resource for these people, along with their family members and loved ones, offering in-depth mental health information from experts and people living with mental health conditions on a daily basis. In addition to awards and honors received over the last 3 years, the website won the Platinum Award for Best Health Content and the Silver Award for Best Overall Internet Health Site from the eHealthcare Leadership Awards program in 2011.
HealthyPlace.com President, Gary Koplin, feels strongly about providing accurate and accessible mental health information to consumers. “Not only are we committed to educating consumers with objective facts about mental health disorders, we also have a vitally important underlying goal to help eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness propagated by stereotypical content produced across all media platforms,” says Koplin. In addition to the articles and blogs, the site features HealthyPlace TV and a radio show. “We developed the TV and radio platforms because some people learn and respond better to those formats. Our vision is that people coming to the site will choose what works best for them and come away informed and empowered to make appropriate choices,” explains HealthyPlace.com Medical Director, Dr. Harry Croft.
