Below are Online Self-Help  and  Online Psychology Compilations before I repaired their links. 

The time and energy I'm having to spend trying to fix the links in Online Self-Help  and  Online Psychology Compilations  demonstrates a vulnerability of the internet.  The information provided by the internet remains available only for as long as the provider of the information continues to function.  If the functionality of the information provider becomes disrupted, the information becomes unavailable.  In this case, not one but two information providers became dysfunctional during the time I was concentrating on physiology rather than psychology.  The two are: 

    1.  Myspace:    

            Criticism of Myspace       


The problem I'm having with Myspace is that many of the references they provide are inactive JavaScript, and I don't know how to retreive an active link from the inactive JavaScript. 

    2.  DMOZ:  

The problem I'm having with DMOZ is that the site has closed completely. 

Online Self-Help - Version 10 Nov 19, 2011, 11:55 PM

Many, perhaps even most, people who first show an interest in psychology are drawn to it because they are uncomfortable with their own lives and want to know how to become happier.  This section is intended for people like that. 

So far I've found only one online book focused specifically on self-help.  It is: 

Psychological Self-Help (PsySH)  *

Although it is based on Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, which is one of my least favorite forms of psychotherapy and it has an odd, rather tasteless ad at the bottom of a few of it's early pages, it seems sincere, and it's possible you might find it helpful.


Several broadly focused compilations of articles which an individual seeking relief from their own personal discomfort might find helpful are: 

Medline Mental Health (MMH)

'Medline' is a website run by the federal government in order to supply medical information to the general public.  This particular link is to the 'Mental Health' section. 

Self Help Resources on the Internet (PsyW) 
Another large list of resources. 

Psych Central (PsyW
Another large list of resources. 

Mental Health Resources  (OD)
Another large list of resources. 

Mental Health Self Help (OD)
A fairly small list of resources. (OD)
Another, fairly small, list of resources. 

Self Help Magazine (PsyW)
This is an online magazine with a large number of mostly non-technical articles by many different authors. 

Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (PsyW) 
Many short articles

HelpHorizons (EnPsy) 
Offers online therapy and online counseling, which cost money, but also has some good articles, which are free.  

Mental Health Matters (EnPsy)
Many links. 

All of these compilations contain many articles and many of the articles have links to other articles, many of which also have links to other articles, etc., so if you're persistent in following the links, you can learn a lot. 

If you want to know more about any of the topics you encounter in the websites linked above, you can find out more by searching for key words in Wikipedia: 

Wikipedia (Wiki)

Note: the Wikipedia search window is a little bit down on the left where you might not notice it right away.

For example, the Wikipedia link for psychotherapy is:

Once you've exhausted the broadly focused compilations listed above, you can type the key word for a specific topic you're interested in into your internet browser window and find many more narrowly focused sources. 

You should also check out the
Psychology Books and Online Psychology Compilations sections which precede this section.  There's no real boundary between helping yourself and learning about psychology.  Each furthers the other.  It's called "Insight Therapy". 

I will continue to add to this 'Self Help' page as I discover new links. 

Online Psychology Compilations - Version 7 Feb21, 2011

Unavoidably, there will be considerable overlap between this section and the 'Self Help' section. 

There's a huge amount of information here.  Instead of taking the topics in the order in which they're presented, I'm going to be impulsively following my own interests.  Since your interests are most likely different from mine, you should check out the primary sources yourself, rather than just passively accepting my guidance.    There are many links.  Follow them!

A fairly long list of what can go wrong.

>Sigmund Freud (OD)

>Carl Jung (OD)

>Carl Rogers (OD)

>Abraham Maslow (OD)

The 'Encyclopedia of Psychology': 

This site boasts that it has 1883 links, and I'm beginning to believe it.  These are the main functional divisions.  I would like to come back later to breakout specific topics but there's so much here I don't know if I can manage it. 

And there's still more to come.
