The main site contains a helpful glossary of medical and scientific terminology. There is a specific tab for educators revealing many useful and informative sections. The headings include Art and the Teenage Brain, Mental Health and the High School Curriculum and School Mental Health.

In addition, there are links to private and public websites focusing on mental health, mental disorders, and medical information.
