NORWALK, Conn., May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US today announced the relaunch of PsychiatricTimes.com, the leading online resource and community for mental health professionals.  For over 20 years, psychiatrists and those allied to the field have looked to Psychiatric Times as a trusted authority for information about the latest developments in mental health, covering topics such as depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, DSM-5, substance abuse, and more.

To better serve healthcare professionals who are increasingly relying on their mobile technology to access information and engage with one another, PsychiatricTimes.com has been updated to provide true multiplatform access across both traditional web and mobile devices. The product's redesign showcases a more streamlined interface, making it easier for physicians to find popular resources and features including the "Couch in Crisis" blog, DSM-5 Resource Center, free CME programs, and classified job listings.

"PsychiatricTimes.com has been updated to meet the needs of physicians, an audience that has widely adopted mobile technologies for professional purposes," said Cyndy Finnie, SVP Product & Operations, UBM Medica US. "These site enhancements will offer improved access to the un-biased, objective coverage of psychiatry, and further stimulate the discussions of current psychiatric issues by our physician audience." 

Visitors to the new PsychiatricTimes.com will be able to:

  • Quickly and easily access the site via desktop computers, smartphones and tablets
