InterPsych forums (aka mailing lists) are one way mental health

others keep up with discourse in their fields, as well as keeping
up with each other.

Below find a listing of InterPsych forums which use e-mail. 
Monthly, you'll receive InterPsych's newsletter which will keep
you informed of things going on around InterPsych, as well as
