Best in Mental Health (weeks of 12/16 - 12/28/13)

Well, to end the year with referrals (it is always nice to refer to others), inspired by another blogger's online research, you're getting a link-full of articles and information some about changes in provisions to mental health care in only the past two weeks, but mostly a dozen or so blogger thoughts, old and new. We probably need to keep up with the new ones, refresh the old.

There are links to social work and psychology sites, nonprofit and private practice sites.

So if you have some time, maybe while thinking up those New Year resolutions, cruise my new best friend Dorlee's suggestions. They might make good reading. Or make you angry.

That depends, as always, upon your politics, for some of these bloggers have strong opinions. One, for example, takes issues with the new DSM, a fairly long read, caveat emptor.

Happy New Year, drive safe or preferably not at all, and as you obviously already know, it really isn't cool anymore to drink excessively on New Years Eve.

Here are a few of Dorlee's suggestions: Social Work Career Development: Best in Mental Health (weeks of 12/16 - 12/28/13)

From her long list, I recommend the following:
How Bullied Children Grow Into Wounded Adults
Avoidance in Trauma
Child Protection Lessons
Able Road  Ways to get around disability, really get around.
What a Shrink Thinks (nice to know the thoughts of other docs on anger)

By the way, not everyone agrees with the DSM-5 boycott. (one of the links)

Dorlee is an excellent blogger and puts much thought to her posts. You indeed found a gem!

I have always loved your blog as well and it was one of the first I started to read a few years back.
