NYU Child Study Center Unveils New Version of Their Child Mental Health and Parenting Web Site: AboutOurKids.org offers new features and resources to parents, educators and professionals
(PRWEB) February 5, 2004
The NYU Child Study Center announced today the launch of their redesigned web site, AboutOurKids.org. The new site continues to provide parents, educators, mental health professionals and anyone who cares about kids with expert-based child mental health and parenting information but now features an updated look and feel, with improved navigation tools and site search, and easy-to-read section overviews. New sections include additional information on the clinical programs and research initiatives of the Child Study Center. Design and development services for the new site were provided by 3Company Design and the New York University School of Medicine web team.
AboutOurKids.org made its debut in December 1999 to support the CenterÂs mission of bridging the gap between science and treatment of psychiatric disorders by providing timely and parent-friendly information on various mental health issues. AboutOurKids.org has won a number of awards including Forbes Best of the Web Directory and the World Wide Web Health Award.
ÂAboutOurKids.org features comprehensive resources about child development, mental health and parenting issues,Â said Harold S. Koplewicz, M.D., Director of the Center. ÂThe site serves as a guide for the mental health concerns of parents and professionals while providing real-life solutions to effectively deal with these issues.Â
The new site, divided into 7 easy-to-navigate sections, allows users to access information on mental health and child development issues. New additions to the site include a glossary of medical terms, A-Z Disorder Guide of common mental health problems, and information about the latest treatments for child mental health disorders that are being developed and tested by Child Study Center researchers. Users can also access information about the CenterÂs educational and training programs for parents, mental health professionals, educators and medical students, as well as upcoming events and workshops. Additional information about the CenterÂs clinical services is also available, including a frequently asked questions section. Future sections of the site include a password protected page for researchers in the field of child and adolescent medicine to exchange information about their current studies, and share their ideas about causes and recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment for psychiatric disorders.
