While I was poking around on the internet thinking about what I should write for this blog post, I stumbled on an interesting app and blog that I had never heard of - The Mental Elf. The Mental Elf is a blog written by five professionals:
These professionals have taken it upon themselves to summarize current, evidence-based mental health publications without the technical language of many research publications. You can download the Mental Elf App for both iPhone and Android phones (the download link can be found on the website).
Another group that has realized that it's not easy to access and understand research is Healthy Minds Canada. In 2009, Healthy Minds Canada approached BC Mental health and Addiction Services to organize a Vancouver based Open Minds Across Canada Symposia. The purpose of the Symposia is for researchers to share their findings with members of the public.
2013 marks the 5th year of Open Minds Vancouver and we are very excited to be organizing it again! If there are any topics that are of interest to you, please post them in the comments section below.
