MentalHealth+

About This Site


MentalHealth+ is partially supported by McMaster's Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences 2016 Innovation Award and is a service of the Health Information Research Unit, McMaster University, as a product of the McMaster Premium Literature Service, McMasterPLUSTM.

MentalHealth+ is continuously updated and provides access to current best evidence from health care research, to support evidence-based clinical decisions.

This service is unique: all citations (from over 110 premier clinical journals) are pre-rated for evidence quality by research staff, then rated for clinical relevance and interest by at least 3 members of a worldwide panel of practicing clinicians (physicians, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, and clinical psychologists with a common interest in mental health).
