patient-run mental health site/forums

Thought I'd provide a link to a good patient-fueled mental health site that I've found useful in the past, some of you may know it already:

www.dr-bob.org

(This is Dr. Robert Hsiung of the University of Chicago, not Dr. Bob from The Body.)

It's a site that has many individual forums -- psychiatric, substance abuse, faith, alternative therapies, and so on, about 19 in all -- though the main one is still the psychiatric/medical forum. There is a specific forum for "newbies." There's a minimal level of moderation. It's basically people with mental health issues talking to each other, answering questions, providing support. The quality of the information can vary. But it's a great place to ask what other people's experiences have been with a particular drug; also, you get information that your GP or psychiatrist might not otherwise tell you. Finally, the huge archives are Google searchable. I have no affiliations with the site.

Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

George Eliot, Middlemarch, final paragraph
