Some ideas that may, or may not be good ideas.. I would be interested to hear other people's thoughts.

A "how to" in arts and crafts - sharing is fun right? Possibly wedged in the creative corner somewhere..

Sections to maybe add:

PTSD & subgroups?

Sleeping disorders?
tips and tricks for getting some quality shut eye.?

Introduction/new users forum where newly registered users who find thier way here via external sources can introduce themselves?

More to follow when the gears free up..

We could sticky this in the main forum with the sub-categories. Or perhaps add in a Guides/Help/Learning section to sit along side poetry/art/song lyrics?

Agreed.

Not entirely sure where to put this. We should probably create a sleep disorder section under mental health disorder stuff and that'd be a useful place to put it. However it's also relevant to depression and presumably other MIs too, so I guess either cross posting it or...? Thoughts?

Definitely.

ACQPL, you've got admin rights buddy. Feel free to act on your ideas. As long as we're not significantly changing stuff without consulting people then creating new things is a none issue really?

What does everybody else think?

(Mostly for my own reference) So far created:

The following in "support":
PTSD - Added. No contained subforums yet.
Sleeping Disorders (SD's) - Added.
Tips and tricks - Added in subforum in "SD's"
Other Mental Health - Added"

Introduce yourself - added in "Forum"

-----------------------------------------------

Other bits in the thought train....:

"Forum rules (& information?)" (Created and locked while my head works this one out)- Could have subfolders for FAQ's, Technical guides & how to's in relation to forum use itself (Uploading images, text formatting etc)

Relationships & sexual health ?

"Vent" Section somewhere ? - No support offered, just a place for people to vent what's on their mind, intelligible or not.

"Addictions" Forum in "Support" containing sub forums for: Smoking, alcohol, drugs for those trying to quit or struggling with.

To be continued....

I like the idea of Relationships and Sexual Health forum. One some other mental health site, the relationship forum is a pretty active one, so I think it will attract some good amount of new members.

Also, should we add Schizoaffective Disorder on the Schizophrenia forum? Like "Schizophrenia and Schizoaffective"?

How about Psychosis Forum? A lot of MI can cause psychosis, like severe Bipolar, OCD, and Borderline.

:D

I have an idea for the website. This is from my own experiance, that i wish sites had. How about a graph for pain, mood and sleep patterns?....with this people can chart their daily functions and use it as a tool to show their Doctors
and for themselves.
