Navigating to the Site. Mentalhealth.com was found by searching nursing-portal.com for relevant links. While I didn’t search any criteria within the nursing portal website, Mentalhealth.com was a suggested link and that is how I stumbled upon it. The site is also available by searching “mental health” in most search engines. I have never seen this website before, but it is easy to find and is a great resource on the topic. Website Selection. I chose this site because I had never heard of it and wanted to assess a site from a non-biased perspective. Mental illness is a widespread and fascinating topic, that affects more than 18 million US Citizens (Long, 2013). What caught my attention immediately is the picture of Vincent Van Gough. It seems Dr. Long is attempted to remove the stigma about mental illnesses by providing examples of famous people who suffer from these disorders, and I appreciated that.
