I'm surprised by the negative reviews cos i've been to this site for a decade and they are very supportive people. Sure the mods had irritated me a few times but as a person with mental illness i always find only myself to blame and i really had no one else in real life and i always end up coming back here and they took me back with warm open arms. Rules and rules, get over the fact that some rules are there for a reason. The people here are very nice and helpful.See positive reviews
Giving this site two stars because, while the folks here are very supportive, the general environment is not conducive to any sort of healing. After reading through many posts for a number of years, it's apparent people are there only to vent and not to get better. I have been on numerous sites and most hold people accountable for their actions (or lack thereof). Most also provide some sort of stability so that, if someone is dealing with a serious issue, they have access to the very best information and the site members adhere to strict guidelines. As an example, a member of this site posted, over several months, about his intent to kill himself, providing a date he intended to be gone. The members responding to him over time, in most circumstances, provided encouragement and suggestions to help him make arrangements. This person killed himself. This was reported to 2 separate admins/mods and they gave no more than a shrug. Please don't visit here if you are feeling bad.See critical reviews
