Mental health is an increasingly significant intellectual and practical concern of people in both academic and social/cultural/political contexts. In recognition of this, Serendip, working with the Center for Science in Society, the School of Social Work and Social Research, and other groups at Bryn Mawr College are working together to encourage productive conversation and scholarship about issues of mental health, both general and specific.

This, like other Serendip sections, is a work in progress, expected to evolve in response to interests and contributions of visitors. Our hope is that, over time, we will be providing access to useful resources on the web, papers, essays, and other locally produced materials, as well as on-line forums for discussion. Currently available are evolving lists of useful web resources orginally compiled by Christine Tubiak, a doctoral student at the Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research, working with Paul Grobstein , Department of Biology, and James Martin, School of Social Work and Social Research, at Bryn Mawr College. Suggestions for additions to these lists are welcome, and should be sent to Debbie Plotnick (, also a student in the Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research, who is currently helping to maintain them.

More general thoughts about how this section might most effectively promote research and practical improvements in the are of mental health should be sent to Jim Martin ( and/or Paul Grobstein (
