The life of a psychologist is filled with research studies, academic journals, online sources, and books. Catching up on all the latest psychology news used to be a hassle, but thanks to the internet, things are changing. While there are plenty of psychology websites around, the following seven are shaping up the way we receive our psychology news.

    The American Psychological Association (APA) launched a newswire to keep curious mental health readers in the know about recent studies. The site offers headline stories with some of the most trusted sources from around the world.

      WebMD is one of the most popular medical websites on the web. It houses endless pages of pharmaceutical drugs, therapy treatment, diagnosis, and of course, mental disorders. The site also contains an eye-watering amount of published content by their MD contributors who are experts in their specialization, which includes psychiatry.

      WebMD offers its readers the opportunity to catch up on all the latest health news. One of the biggest features of WebMD is its powerful Symptom Checker. Used by millions, this feature allows the public to self-diagnose any condition or illness using a symptom knowledge base.

        Psychology Today, although only publishes print every two months, is the most popular psychology magazine in the world. With a total circulation of 250,000, this magazine has informed the general public on the important news of mental health since 1967. However, in modern days, Psychology Today is mostly known for its directory database which helps locate therapists or psychologists in your area.

        Their blog, run by hundreds of expert contributors and journalists, include areas in psychiatry, sociology, anthropology, and parenting.

        4. The New York Times’ Well
