Top 10 Psychology and Mental Health Topics of 2011Ah, another year draws to a close, and we here at Psych Central are making our lists and checking them twice. No, wait, that was last week. This week, we’re just making lists (no, we don’t have OCD).

It’s been another record-breaking year here at Psych Central, as we now see more than 2 million people each month visit our sites and self-help support groups. They come here not only to learn about a mental health concern, but also about common psychological topics and issues, and to learn how to improve their relationships and parenting skills. We’re growing all of these topics in 2012, because how you live your life is interwoven with so much of psychology and understanding ourselves.

The good news about 2012 is that every new year brings with it the possibility of a new start and changing some of those aspects about yourself that you admit could use a little improvement. We’ll be here for you to help you with those goals, and to provide you thousands of new articles on these topics from experts, professionals and people just like you.

Click through to see our top 10 lists for the World of Psychology blog, our entire blog network, and from our news bureau.
