Depression forums are a great place to go to for advice, support and ideas. They are similar to chat rooms and it is a safe place where you can ask questions, request guidance or provide some advice yourself.
I have personally used forums and chat rooms for one reason or another and have always found them to very helpful. So I decided to provide a "sacred space" on my site for you to share information and get support. This "sacred space" mimics and is very similar to other forums or chat rooms. The only difference is that it is hassle free!
With most forums you usually have to register and be approved then choose a username and password to log in. I have decided to make my forums much easier to access and navigate so you can get the support you need without the hassle. I encourage you to get involved here....reach out and ask for support...reach out and support others. This is a place where we can all unite and help each other through the tough times that we all have to face. A place to find courage, to push through the tough stuff and come out on the other side as the shining, rising star that you are!
Simply choose your topic below, click on it, then scroll down to the submission form! From there, ask a question or answer one.
This is a place for everyone to help and be helped!
Here are some other forums that I researched. A word of caution, as you look for a forum - look at the dates of the discussions. If there aren’t any current posts then it is likely that the forum is “out of business” or at the very least out dated which will make the forum useless to you. I will keep researching helpful forums, support groups, etc. and add them to this list so keep checking this page for additions. Also, if you know of any others that would be beneficial to add please let me know.
There are a lot others out there but they are not very good. A forum is only as good as the moderator and the support that is provided.
Also, word of caution, as you look for a forum, you want to look at the dates of the discussions. Most of the forums are very outdated so they will be worthless to you.

Some other self help options for you include things like a depression support group . They are a great way to find local support and surround yourself with like minded people and mental health professionals to help you every step of the way.
Also, you might want to consider a depression chat room . They are good as well but only if the rooms are active and have good moderators.
Again, there are many options and depression forums and chat rooms can be one of many ways to find the support you need.
