    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!

    Dealing with a mental health patient is hard enough, combing the web to find the right help should not be a chore as well.

    The link above is a collection of resources for families dealing with mental health patients in New York.

    Tips for getting past difficult times:

    1. Patience with the person suffering
    2. Boost their morale if they are aware of the issue
    3. Give them small challenges so they can gain back their confidence
    4. People do heal, with the right medicines and support group
    5. Post trauma life could be difficult for the patient as they adjust back and they need support getting back on their feet.
