HealthyPlace Mental Health Support Network

If you're a member of the HealthyPlace Mental Health Support Network, then you've probably noticed some changes taking place. We are updating not only the look, but we're adding some new features as well.

  • Chat: Many of our members have asked for better chat functionality. Now, once logged into the support network, you will see a fixed gray chat bar at the bottom of your screen (similar to facebook) and the words "who's online" on the bottom right side. All your "friends" are automatically added to the screen, and there's a green circle next to their names which indicates they are currently logged into the Support Network. (Want to chat with others? Add them as a friend.)
  • Your Videos: If you would like to contribute personal videos, you can either link to a video you have on another hosting site, like youtube, or upload a video of your own. This can be done from your "profile" page. Click "add a video" link under "my status". Videos are a great way to share your feelings and experiences with others in the Support Network.

If you aren't a member, we encourage you to join. It's simple and free. Just click the "register" button at the top, right of any page.

We have more new features and new content coming in October. Stay tuned for that.
