    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.

    If you really want help, talk to your doctor.

    A lot of people I know, who keep stopping their medication every time they feel a little better, keep going through the "Revolving Door," in and out of the hospital forever, all because they feel stigmatized by their mental illness and psychiatric medication.

    My doctor recently reduced my medication--I would not do this without my doctor's guidance--I've come too far in my recovery process to jeopardize it by fooling with my medication.

    Wishing you good mental health.
