- SELF-e-VALUATOR. Developed by Duke University Medical Center, the Self-e-Valuator is an on-line screening designed to help students determine if they are at risk for depression, suicide, alcohol/substance dependence, eating disorders, generalized anxiety disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
- MENTAL HEALTH REFERENCE LIBRARY. This reference library provides quality information and has been reviewed and approved by medical experts at Harvard Medical School.
