Hello Amy,

Your Article - Finding Information Online From Peers and Professionals

Says -

>Web sites and mental health support groups, many doctors agree, can provide patients with valuable information about treatments for depression, anxiety, attention deficit disorder and other problems.


>And learning about psychiatric medications from peers, they say, can destigmatize mental illness in a way that no medical authority ever could.

Yes you're right it can help destigmatise ~ you're correct - all kinds of information which is put forward which distorts areas of mental health on a global basis which can be destigmatised here. Its a very useful website for education and support.

My Applogies if my tone come across as playing "THE AMATEUR PHARMACIST" from part 8 of your series. I feel I have to applogise as I am not one.

Levels of expertise about ones brain - is in my case, known to me.

An expert Pharmacist can ask all kinds of questions to which I'll gladly take on board. Likewise I gladly question them given the chance.

When you own, lets say you own a Lamborghini Murcielago. You've taken it to a fair number of mechanics. They've looked under the bonet (hood) nothings been fixed, the problems been made worse. What do you do? Do you become an Amateur mechanic. Conversely, do you find out the exact nature of the problem as its your car (its priceless) you want it to perform the best it can. You become an expert in matters. You become an expert of what you own.

Compare that to your brain if that makes sense.

Amateur vs the expert the workings of your own brain and what makes it tick - correctly.

Speaking for myself, and reducing stigma for myself.

Best Wishes
