Politics

Post by LibertyBelle » Thu Jul 13, 2017 5:01 pm

A political-mental health discussion board would be helpful. The theme would be how politics impacts people's mental health.

Lots of events in 2016 in particular seemed to have an impact on many people's mental health.

The world might be craving a place to discuss such things.

Is this not covered by the "Other mental health" forum though?

"An area for discussion of other Mental Health issues that don't quite fit into any of the other categories. "

Examples of mental health intersecting with politics:

- Candidate Trump's words effecting survivors of sexual abuse
- Asylum seekers and refugees experiencing discrimination and alienation
- Divisive political attitudes tearing apart previously cohesive families and friends
- 24 hour news cycles and psychotic symptoms

A specific place to discuss these things might draw more people to the board.
