MentalHealth.gov serves as a one-stop access point for information from U.S. government agencies on mental health problems and supporting resources. Written in approachable language, this project aims to educate the general public, as well as health professionals, policymakers, and school and community leaders. Here, visitors can find basic facts about mental health and information about a number of conditions, such as anxiety and mood disorders, eating disorders, suicidal behaviors, and post-traumatic stress disorder. This resource also provides guidance for ways to talk about psychological well-being, with advice targeting a variety of audiences including parents, educators, young people, and those with mental health problems. Additionally, this site provides links to numerous ways to get help, including resources for veterans, information regarding health insurance, and phone numbers for immediate help. Launched in June 2013, MentalHealth.gov was created as part of the federal government's effort to initiate a national dialogue on the subject. Multiple federal agencies contributed to the content in this resource, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institute of Mental Health, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. This site is also available in Spanish.
