SECTION A: PsychNews Information

This section has been provided to remind you of
some PsychNews International (PN) information and
to make you aware of changes that may not be so
obvious to the general reader.

DESCRIPTION
The Mailing List PsychNews International
PsychNews International  An Online Publication  is an
independent electronic publication distributed to professionals,
students, and others interested in issues related to the mental
health profession. 

PsychNews (or short: PN), formerly titled the InterPsych
Newsletter (IPN) and associated with the organization 
InterPsych, has been in existence for more than a year and
serves thousands of readers as one of the first and premier 
sources of its kind on the Internet for international news in
psychology and psychiatry.

PsychNews Int'l publishes articles on current events in mental 
health, updates from relevant Internet discussion groups, as 
well as original research and theoretical articles. PN also 
contains reports on new mental health resources on the Internet, 
conference, employment, and announcement listings.
