Mental Health America Launches Online Support Community

Mental Health America has launched the Mental Health America Support Community—a new online community that connects families, friends, and caregivers for support and inspiration. The community has been created in partnership with Inspire, to provide safe, online health and wellness communities to help members live mentally healthier lives. Visit us at:

www.mentalhealthamerica.net/community

The community allows registered members to take part in moderated discussion groups, post personal journals, and support fellow members through their individual journeys and experiences. Those joining the community will find coping strategies and answers to their questions, as well as vital support, compassion, encouragement, and inspiration from others sharing experiences similar to theirs. Registration is free; upon joining, members will have complete control of their privacy options and can communicate with others in a safe, secure environment.

The Mental Health America Support Community contains over 20 discussion topics and features allowing members to...

·       Read and participate in discussions
·       Post personal profiles – share as much or as little as they’d like about themselves
·       Post personal photos or videos
·       Invite other members to be friends
·       Create a personal journal (or “blog”) where they can express their feelings and allow others to comment
·       Read others’ journals to learn about their experiences
