As online resource in psychology, mental health and well-being, Psychreg features a wealth of information: from profiles, articles, podcast, job vacancies, events, etc. It aims to be generous with information of value to its readers. Hence, it’s unashamedly a mishmash. But in a nutshell, Psychreg is simply all about understanding human behaviour.
Growing up in a slum in Manila in the Philippines, I have witnessed first-hand how discussions about mental health and well-being are considered a luxury, which is understandable given that there are numerous issues which are deemed to be more pressing.
Indeed, managing Psychreg, along with other commitments, was a shot in the dark – financially and otherwise. But through the support of the online community, Psychreg is gradually gaining traction. The story of Psychreg is personal: It’s about providing a platform to both academics in the field, as well as to those who would like to air their views on mental health. It’s about harnessing the power of the internet – of human interconnections – to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all, at all ages.
