My Favourite Resource

SaveYourself.ca publishes many free articles of interest to any curious doctor or therapist. Many of them are quite controversial (and interesting), but all of them are thoroughly referenced.

SaveYourself.ca also has an actual readers’ guide for the site just for professional visitors, with a lot more links.
