Psycom.net, a property of Remedy Health Media, was founded by renowned psychiatrist and clinical psychopharmacologist Ivan K. Goldberg, MD. In the early days of the Internet, Dr. Goldberg saw a need for a discussion group for clinicians who could use it to share and exchange information and advice. The site has evolved into a highly-regarded and trusted mental health resource for consumers.

Content covers a variety of mental health conditions including bipolar disorder, ADHD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, depression, and generalized anxiety disorder. The legacy of the late Dr. Goldberg continues today. Each piece of content provides a service to the reader through education and empowerment. Psycom seeks to inspire patients and their caregivers to better understand their mental health conditions and to take an active role in their own care.

Our recently-launched sister site, Psycom Pro, is a psychiatry and mental health resource for clinicians and by clinicians.  Providers can find expert insights, practice trends, and practical strategies for assessing and treating patients— as well as psychopharmacology FAQs and peer-to-peer tips on attaining work-life balance.
