Students There is great variety in student interests. Much interest is related to class assignments, but other students are really concerned and interested and need more challenging,quality material. Again, material needs to be popular, clearly written, well organized with good examples, and illustrated. Psychology Today is often used as the model for this audience. Periodical articles and quality website material are popular. Intelligent Lay people A major problem faced by teachers, students, and lay people is that there is too much mental health material available today in print and on the web. It is often difficult to identify sources that are authoritative or at least well-regarded. A first stop, since many are concerned with particular problems, is the APA Help Center . The Open Directory Project [health and then mental health] is an excellent directory for web sources and Internet Mental Health is also very good. Clearly, public librarians have a challenge in selecting popular material [ pop psychology ] that's in demand but may be ephemeral and not evidence based.
