Databases to Find Scholarly Articles

Public health information tends to be multi-disciplinary, meaning you'll often need to search several databases geared toward different disciplines. For example, if you are designing a program to educate families about the signs and symptoms of depression, you may end up searching PubMed or Medline (biomedical), PsycINFO (psychology), ERIC (education), and Family Studies Abstracts (sociology).
