PLoS, the Public Library of Science, is where I now work as Blogs Community Manager. The good people who edit PLoS Medicine are building a new collection about mental health strategies that are effective especially in what are called “low resource” places. My view is that this description probably covers a lot more places than one would think. The article has links to some interesting ongoing programs and projects in places like Africa and Afghanistan.
I’m a Mom Who Blogs About Neuroscience
In addition to being the mother of two sons, I'm a science writer, focusing on the mental health concerns that can rob a parent's much needed sleep. A little over 10 years ago, when my then 17 year-old son Alex was diagnosed with schizophrenia, I desperately needed a blog like this. In my posts, I put the latest research about child and adolescent mental health into plain talk that parents can use. You'll hear about treatment that includes therapy and medication. I have no agenda, other than mental wellness. There's plenty here also on emotional resilience, and prevention. Please ask your own questions, and I promise to do my best to find answers.
Lastly, in this blog I am speaking only for myself as an individual. The views expressed in any post or article do not represent those of my current employer, PLOS, The Public Library of Science.
