How It Works

The Psych Central Clinician Connection works to help professional join together in a safe and secure private online community and share in the world's first cross-disciplinary social network exclusively for mental health professionals.

What makes the Clinician Connection different? Unlike Facebook, Linked In or any other social network, the Clinician Connection is not open to the public. So you don’t have to worry about the ethical issues of clients who want to “friend” you here.

Join Our Therapist Directory

The best part of the Clinician Connection -- besides being free for the first year! -- is the chance to show up in the therapist search directory on Psych Central, the world's largest mental health site. Unlike other online directories that are connected with small companies and have little visibility online, Psych Central is a known and trusted mental health resource for over 24 years. Your association with Psych Central will help you grow your practice.

Connect with colleagues

Although conventions and professional meetings are great places to network, we can’t always get to them every year. And they're expensive (even if it's a business expense). Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to find colleagues similar to you, dealing with the same kinds of clients, that you could socialize with, share your experiences, and perhaps even glean something new?

Reduce professional isolation while improving client care

Too many psychotherapists today toil in a lonely, solitary office, seeing 6, 7 or 8 clients every day with few breaks or time to chat with other professionals. Take some time out for yourself and your own needs and relax in our Social Lounge. Feel re-connected with your colleagues and better yet, expand your horizons and chat with professionals from any mental health discipline.

While your experience with your clients can’t be replaced, sometimes clients present issues we’re not sure how to handle or deal with in the best therapeutic manner possible. What if you could check in with other professionals about a difficult client issue and get feedback from other professionals who’ve already been there and dealt with that?

Get (& Keep!) More Clients

A basic listing within our directory is standard as a part of your Clinician Connection membership. This listing helps to increase your visibility online by increasing your visible footprint. (The directory listing is optional for all members; you can join the network and have no public directory listing.) Your first year of membership is on us; after that, for the next 10 years, we will never charge more than $99 per year for a basic listing.
