    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Questions About Depression
    Andie_WebMD_Staff posted:
    WebMD is putting together a segment on our site called Depression TV, which will be a talk radio-type format where a DJ provides a member question to an expert on Depression, and that expert or experts answer.

    If you have questions about depression that you'd like to submit for consideration, please send them to with the subject line "Depression TV", and be sure to include your WebMD member screen name. We will gather all of our member's questions and submit them to the Depression TV folks.

    Below is a list of some of the topics for which we're looking for questions, but your question does not have to adhere to these topics. It can be unique.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    Take care,

    Andie and the WebMD Health Exchange Staff
