Most large websites are created by a development team of web designers, who are paid to do the job. The Psychology Wiki is different in that it is created by the community that will later use it.
We need to attract many contributors to make the vision of the psychology wiki a reality. You can help, through your own contributions and through raising awareness of the project and attracting more contributors.

Many people will experience some issues with mental health at some point in their lives. Mental illness should be taken as seriously as physical health, but despite continuing improvement in the public eye there is still a stigma attached to mental health on occasion.
Experiences of Depression, for example, are very common, and some estimates suggest that as many as 1 in 3 people may experience depression at some point in their lives. People with personal experiences in any area of mental health can contribute to the Psychology Wiki in a way that other people are unable to. Such people will include:
Friends or family members who may wish to share their experiences on the Psychology Wiki
Clients who you may be counselling may wish to anonymously share their experiences on this site, to help others who may read their story. This is best done in retrospect after they feel they have recovered. Sharing your experience of Illness and recovery to help others may enable people to gain closure and put the experience behind them. For more information on how to contribute please click here.
