What are Mental Health communities?
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 Reddit
Reddit communities (or "subreddits") are forum-based groups on the popular social news aggregation, web content rating, and discussion website Reddit. Reddit is commonly known as "the front page of the internet". Users submit content to the site such as links, text posts, and images, which are then voted up or down and discussed by other members. From investing Reddit communities, to professional ones, to ones just for laughs, you're likely to find a community for you on Reddit.
