This book concludes with a postscript that presents two important sources of information for people with mental illness, both of which are web sites: the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (www.samhsa.gov) and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (www.nami.org). SAMHSA is one of the country's two federal mental health agencies while NAMI is a leading mental health advocacy organization. The two sites contain information on mental disorders, the latest in treatment options, how to connect with others with similar needs, and books and articles on mental illness. The SAMHSA site has sections titled “Treatment Locators” and “Browse by Topic,” whereas the NAMI site has the subheadings “Inform Yourself” and “Find Support.”
