    Many, perhaps even most, people who first show an interest in psychology are drawn to it because they are uncomfortable with their own lives and want to know how to become happier.  This section is intended for people like that.  
   
    So far I've found only one online book focused specifically on self-help.  It is: 
    Psychological Self-Help (PsySH)    ^ 
    http://www.psychologicalselfhelp.org/      

    Several broadly focused compilations of articles which an individual seeking relief from their own personal discomfort might find helpful are: 

Internet Mental Health    ^  
http://www.mentalhealth.com/home/  

Mental Health: MedlinePlus    ^^ 

Psychology Self-Help Resources on the Internet  ^^

Encyclopedia of Psychology    ^^
https://psychcentral.com/encyclopedia/   

Mental Disorders & Conditions - DSM  ^^   

Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry  ^^ 

Mental Health Matters Mental Health Information and Resources   ^^ 
https://mental-health-matters.com/   

Open Directory - Psychology (OD)*  

    ^  
    Unfortunately, this site, which was quite large, has shut down.  There is, however, a static mirror:
    http://dmoztools.net/Health/Mental_Health/Self-Help/    ^ 

    All of these surveys contain many articles and many of the articles have links to other articles, many of which also have links to other articles, etc., so if you're persistent in following the links, you can learn a lot. 

    If you want to know more about any of the topics you encounter in the websites linked above, you can find out more by searching for key words in Wikipedia:  

Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia  ^  (Google) 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page   

    for example, 

Psychotherapy - Wikipedia  ^  (Google) 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychotherapy  

Once you've exhausted the broadly focused compilations listed above, you can type the key word for a specific topic you're interested in into your internet browser window and find many more narrowly focused sources. 

    And, if you just can't get enough cyber psychology, searching Google for the titles of the links will sometimes find new references.   

You should also check out the Psychology Books and Online Psychology Compilations sections.  There's no real boundary between helping yourself and learning about psychology.  Each furthers the other.  It's called "Insight Therapy". 


Note on the "^" and "&" punctuation.  

    "^"  =  mouse-over cleansed of My Space Links  - responds to clicks 

    "&"  =  mouse-over still infected by My Space Links - doesn't respond to clicks 

As indicated by the "^" punctuation, all of the above references are clean and active.  To see the same references when they were still infected by My Space Links, see   MySpcLk   .
