About the Mental Health Topic

This list is geared around communities that focus on Mental Health topics. For those that suffer from some sort of mental health issue themselves, to those that want resources on how to support their friends and family, to networks for Mental Health professionals, and of course places on the internet where you can go for some positivity and good vibes. Several of these communities have sub-forums or channels dedicated to particular topics within the world of Mental Health.

About Online Communities on Independent Platforms

These are online communities that are hosted on their own platform, and not a part of a social network like Reddit/Facebook/LinkedIn, or communication platform like Slack and Discord. Although they may utilize community software like circle.so to implement the features of their community, they have their own brand and identity.
