@SzAdmin…as matter of interest, how do you keep track of these mental health articles in the newspapers. You had one from the NY Times and now this one from the “English” Guardian.

I use a ton of different services.

Here is a partial list:

Twitter: I follow about 1,000 different groups and people.

MyYahoo - I subscribe to the RSS feeds (news updates) for about 200 different web sites that cover news in this area.

Google Alerts: I watch all kinds of different “key words” - like psychosis, mental health, schizophrenia, antipsychotic, etc.
