Welcome to our psychology blog. Our blog is intended as a source of information an recent research on mental health and psychology for a general audience. Thus, our articles are meant to convey interesting psychological findings for entertainment purposes. For readers interested in more in-depth or rigourous psychological analysis, we invite them to click the links within the articles to read the research being discussed. As new psychological studies are conducted, we may post new articles referencing older ones to add to or correct them and keep the information as up-to-date, as possible.

In some cases, psychology studies are very specific in scope, and thus, we may draw additional information from clinical experience and logical deductions based on information from various studies. Naturally, we try to stay as unbiased as possible, but everyone holds opinions and our readers are encouraged to present counter-arguments, should they disagree. This page and every article has an "Ask Us" form on top, where our readers are encouraged to submit comments, feedback, questions, and even counter-arguments, so that we may write response articles. For a more direct line of communication, we also invite our readers to comment and discuss with each other on our facebook posts and forum.

In these ways, we invite our readers to engage in productive and stimulating dialogue or argumentation to help spread positive messages, and help grow our community of psychologically conscious readers.
