Computers in Psychiatry
- Extra Content

Welcome to the companion website for the book Computers in Psychiatry. Thanks for buying the book. These pages are intended to serve several functions. Each chapter of the paper book is packed with useful sites that you can view for further information. Come here to the website and save yourself a whole lot of typing (and mistyping) by following the hyperlinks through to other sites.

In addition we have included some links and commentary to several chapters that didn't appear in the book for reasons of space or time (only the best excuses accepted!). Some chapters will also have things like templates and sample files which you can download and use.

Finally, we have some stuff that couldn't be forced into a particular chapter which we put under the heading of general resources.

Do feel free to have a wander around. We checked out the external links as best we could but we take no responsibility for websites that are not under our control.

For the material that is under our control we've done our best to ensure correctness but If you see anything (in print or on the website) you think needs fixing send me an email at or make a posting to the Google Groups discussion forum. We'll correct the website or, in the case of the book, put an erratum on the website and fix it in the next paper edition.
