Mental health-related links

There are a huge number of mental health-related resources available online.  Many of them are free, and many of them are high quality, but sometimes the biggest challenge can be finding what is most useful and relevant to you.  Listed below are links to some resources that have caught my eye (note – these are not sponsored links).  Please let me know what your favourites are, and what I should add to the list.
