Psych Central acquires New England Psychologist

Psych Central has acquired New England Psychologist, an independent trade publication for psychologists in the greater New England region.

In announcing the deal, Newburyport, Mass.-based Psych Central said it will operate the publication as part of its growing Psych Central Professional network. Psych Central is an online mental health and psychology network.

New England Psychologist was founded in 1993 as Massachusetts Psychologist by Denise M.T. Yocum, Psy.D. The publication changed its name in 2002 and expanded to all New England states – Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. It is mailed to all licensed psychologists in the region, and its special directory of New England psychiatric hospitals/units is mailed to psychiatrists as well.

Psych Central plans to continue uninterrupted publication of New England Psychologist throughout 2018, while integrating past articles and its website into the company's mental health professional section, Psych Central Professional.

"Dr. Yocum has built and overseen a fantastic publication with great journalism, one we're honored to continue for years to come as a part of Psych Central," said John Grohol, Psy.D., Psych Central's founder and CEO.

Psych reaches more than seven million users each month. Approximately 10 percent of its audience is comprised of mental health professionals, including psychologists.
