Psych Central is the Internet’s largest and oldest independent mental health social network. Since 1995, it has been run by mental health professionals offering reliable, trusted information and over 200 support groups to consumers. We are today’s modern voice for mental health information and advocacy and have the broadest online reach and recognition of any mental health network online today, touching the lives of over 3 million people around the world every month.
Psych Central has its roots in indexing online support groups, starting in the summer of 1991. Launched in January 1995 as Psych Central: John Grohol’s Mental Health Page, our website was an instant hit from the beginning with its directory of online mental health resources and the first lists of symptoms for mental disorders published online. Within the first 3 months, it received Point’s prestigious Top 5% of the Web award, as well as a fair amount of media attention in the ensuing years. We are consistently rated as one of the top mental health resources online today.
