Q. I need to full text articles about serious mental illness, but I am not seeming to be able to access an actual copy of the articles
I would suggest that you go to the Myers Library Online and login with your OUID and password. Then go to the Online Library Databases link and click on it. Once you see a list of the databases go to Ebscohost. In Ebscohost choose the following databases by click the checkmark next to them: PsychArticles, Academic Search Premier and Psychology and Behavioral Science Collection and search across them by clicking continue. Then in the search box enter your search: severe AND mental illness. I would also suggest that you consider combining your search terms with other ones because with those terms alone you will find thousands of articles and you will need to limit your search much more. Then look below the search box for a box that allows you to checkmark scholarly articles and full-text articles. Once this is done click the search button.
When I performed the search in Ebscohost with those databases and terms I found 4995 full-text articles. If you have any problems with trying this search out, give me a call at the number below. I am in the office today until 4pm CST.
