    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,

    I don't think the term "asylum" is used anymore - there are mental health facilities and in-patient hospital programs that treat those with mental illness. It's important that you mother get a proper diagnosis and treatment ASAP. Below are some links that might help.


    WebMD's Crisis Resources might be a good place to start to find some help for your mom:

    SAMHSA's National Mental Health Information Center
    Phone: 1-877-SAMHSA-7 (1-877-726-4727)

    Mental Health America
    Phone: (800) 969-6642

    You can find more resources, links and phone numbers here: Finding Help for Depression
