Several people have asked me if it's alright for them to join the community if they are involved with someone who is mentally ill, but are also suffering from a psychiatric disorder themselves. I've given it some thought. The truth is that we need this community to grow, and the last thing I want is to turn away people who feel like they can benefit from it. ( Here's the way I see it.Collapse )
But this group was made for those who are in a relationship with someone who is suffering from a psychiatric disorder. As long as members understand the goals of the community and aren't here to talk about their own mental health issues, they are welcome to join and contribute. I hope you all agree.
For those who have joined and to the ones who are about to, I'm grateful to have you here, and I am looking forward to seeing your posts.
