In 1998 I wanted to share my experiences with undiagnosed depression and misdiagnosis. Little did I know that my simple personal "homepage" would become one of the internet's oldest personal website on depression, mental health, and emotional abuse. Early writings have appeared in an anthology of a graduate student's masters thesis, and my journey with and through this website have appeared in online channels past and present, including Beliefnet, Genetics & Health, and Hyphen magazine. Jane's Mental Health Source Page is now one of the web's voices on the deleterious consequences of "Tiger Parenting", with wounded cubs all over the world sharing with me their stories of childhood abuse and trauma from parental emotional abuse.
