Hi everyone hope you are all well. I recently joined this forum and had a few questions for members who have used this website and what they think of it.
I am looking for some advice regarding my health needs especially in regards to mental health, and i thought to myself that maybe i should join an online forum.
When i did i google search for health forums that are literally hundreds?
I am confused which one to join and choose to become a regular poster.
So far i have found a few forums that may suit my needs
These 4 forums have quite a lot of posts and number of members, but healthboards seem to have the most member and posts.
So can people advise me is it better to join and contribute regularly to a more general forum to do with all health matters or is it better to join a forum that is dedicated to specific health issues.... eg. depression?
I am also wondering about the quality of advice given at general health forums ..... will they have regular members that have detailed knowledge of ANY SPECIFIC ISSUE? or will they give you advice that is quite basic unlike specialised health forums such as SocialAnxietySupport.com
What is it about this forum do you think that sets it apart from its competitors in terms of features, member numbers etc?
Thanks for reading this post and i hope you can help so i can decide which forum i should dedicate my time to and which forum is likely to have the most knowledgeable members giving helpful advice
