Q. Where can I find information about depression?


Since there is such a large amount of information about depression, you may wish to think about ways to narrow your topic.  Try using phrases such as "Mental depression" or "Depressive disorder" followed by AND and one of the following:

  • Diagnosis
  • Symptoms
  • Treatment
  • Psychotherapy
  • Cognitive therapy

For books or ebooks, check the book catalog. To get to the book catalog, start at the Library Home Page (http://guides.baker.edu/onlineresources), and click on Find Books and Ebooks.  You may also wish to run a search in the Gale Virtual Reference Library database.

For articles, check the databases below. To get to the Find Articles and Databases page, start at the Library Home Page (http://guides.baker.edu/onlineresources), click on Find Articles & Databases, and click on Social Sciences. If you are off-campus you will need to use your 14 digit Library Card number, which can be found on your ID Card or in SOLAR.

For more resources, check out the Psychology Research Guide.  A good website to look at would be the National Institute of Mental Health.  They have a section on Depression.
