Learning what helps from the 'experts'

Health profs could learn a from these boards. In finding the words and way of saying them that will be meaningful, honest and supportive for people in distress. Of course, people vary a lot. And something about shared experience wouldnt make sense from a health prof.

It would need a bit of work which would probably need Dr Bob or equivalent. As it would need some picking thru the posts and there is a lot of repition, and also lots of posts that wouldnt be relevant. The best way of identifying the posts that were useful for people would be to work back from the 'thanks a lot for that post' to the post that the person was referring to.

That would be ideal, but even some browsing of the posts could give health profs some idea of what we go thru, plus how we can support each other. And hopefully show that at least some of us with psychological problems are actively fighting and trying our best to cope, rather than passive victims. And just how awful our experiences are.

Neat match with their knowledge of risk assessment, conventional diagnosis, and psychopharmacology, and adding to what they say re coping.
