Forums for other mental illnesses?

Are there any other forums for mental disorders?
Things like borderline, autism, depression, etc?

Does anyone know any good, active ones?

I tried Special Bridge, but you have to pay for it (friend requests and stuff). It’s silly

I’ve ventured to lurk on a few other types of forums and mental health pages. Not one was up to the quality of people I’ve found here. Not even close.

We’ve made a nice tribe here.

I’ve been to other sites before with forums for various mental illnesses but this is the best one I’ve found for sza. I think NAMI has a forum. The others I’ve forgotten but i found them by googling “mental illness forums”. Hope you find what you’re looking for.

I used to go to Wrong Planet to maybe get insight on my daughter. It didn’t really help because she is developmentally disabled along with the autism.

Are you still in Greece? I did a search for “mental health forum Greece” and didn’t find anything really.

This forum is more active but reddit has more discussions about schizophrenia.

I like the interface of this forum more than reddit. I think this forum is better moderated than reddit.

I don’t like reddit for mental health discussions because you see a lot of really sick people making comments that can hurt or trigger others

The interface and moderation is excellent here.
Other MI forums aren’t as professional.

I’ve seen your active in r/schizophrenia. Its a little ‘generic’ without avatars IMO.

You just never really talk to the same person twice. Or do you not have that problem?
