Journal Articles

You can find journal articles by going to the Renton Technical College Library database page and searching either ProQuest or CINAHL.

  • ProQuest and CINAHL - In either of these databases try an advanced search with "mental disorders" as a subject, and - as a location - the name of a country you are interested in.  This will provide you with articles from, or about, the mental health situation in that country.
