    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,

    Hi everyone- Just wanted to pop in and say hi.....have been battling depression for a number of years. Was in hospital beginning of September after suicide attempt (3rd time) and really needed to reach out to others. This was the first time I was in the hospital for an extended period of time after an attempt and I really enjoyed the groups.

    I have Multiple Sclerosis which probably doesn't help things much! But I am trying to make the most out of everyday and seeing a psychiatrist and a therapist now. I look forward to getting to know you guys and offering my support to all of you as well....

    Hi Brooke!

    I'm so glad that you're using tools to take care of yourself and you had a good experience with the hospital groups.

    I look forward to getting to know you as well. I'm typing away from the Los Angeles, CA area. Where are you located?
