Dr Bob,

The enviroment you have created here for a mental health forum is the best on the internet bar none. This site is successfull for a few reasons; First and foremost, superb monitoring, the site is policed enough to keep it focused and loose enough for views to be expressed openly. I think that has been created or evolved due to the simple fact we are forced to stay focused in our threads. We all know nonsense, no personal attacks, no wacked out non substantiated ideas. This creates a forum with a purpose, to educate ourselves through our own experiences and the experiences of others who are on meds and their results. There is a variety of experiences for all different medications some good some bad but at least they are actual experiences, real world and not some drug companies list of adverse effects from some controlled group study bent to make their drug look good. Another very important point, I think all of us guinea pigs trust each other due to the fact we are in the trenches trying meds to get well. We know the pressure put on the medical establishment by the pharmaceuticals reps and we know where most drug companies put most of their resources into selling the drugs. We therefore are forced into a position of having only each other to truly hear the facts about whether or not these drugs work. Now don't get me wrong God Bless The drug companies and their ability to make me well but I still trust my mates who struggle as I do well beyond what My doc or the drug companies say. The truly great movements of self help...Recovery Inc, AA, NA, all the 12 step groups have depended on each other because it is much easier to trust someone who has walked the walk. Kudos to the way you direct the site and control its contents. I think what you have here is truly unique, very helpfull, and educational. Most doctors don't get data we see on this site. We are way ahead of the game. The last and very vital item....the members...there are members here like Cam, and Elizabeth, John L., Salarmy, ect....who go out of their way to answer questions for people to give then the ability to make good choices. Ultimately it's the participants which make the forum.....I agree this is not your typical internet site.....Thank God.

Keep up the good work

God Bless.
