  1. You cover quite a range of topics in your posts, Dorlee.

    This is a very interesting round-up (mash-up, I think it's called) of what grabbed your attention this week.

  2. Thanks, Marianna - I'm glad you found this collection interesting :)

    It's true that I covered more than what is traditionally covered within a strictly "mental health" category but I feel that mental health is much broader and spans more areas today.

    As I result, I'm changing the title from best tweets for mental health professionals to best tweets in mental health.

    However, perhaps this revised title is still not capturing the full essence...If you (or any of my other readers) has any suggestions regarding the name for this weekly post, please let me know.
