Understanding mental illness

Want to understand a psychiatric diagnosis? These resources been chosen only if they:

  • have a good reputation (which usually means they are created by mental health services or organisations)
  • are kept up to date
  • are easy to understand and use
  • reflect the Australian viewpoint
  • are not judgmental, blaming or stigmatising towards consumers, their families/carers or clinicians (no “angry” sites!)

Please note that although we make every effort to locate reputable information on mental health, we cannot take responsibility for the content of those resources. If you have questions we suggest that you talk to a mental health professional.
