      *As a new member, you will have a limit of two Topics in each Forum   02/10/2016

      If you're new to our community, taking the step for the first time to post publicly to a message board can sometimes seem intimidating. Don't be afraid to jump into a discussion once you have registered with us. We have a very supportive community that serves up heavy doses of support, encouragement and enthusiasm. We love meeting new people and being friendly. While we hope that you'll become an active participant and join in our discussions, you're welcome, of course, to simply hang out silently until you feel more comfortable posting a message. *As a new member, you will have the ability to post two active topics in each Forum. You may reply to as many as you wish. Click on "New Topic" or you may "Reply" to an ongoing post. You will get the hang of it if you have never posted in a forum before.   *An active topic is defined as a topic that is on the front page of our busier forums or a topic that has recieved replies in the last 48 hours in our quiter forums. ~Lindsay, Forum Super Administrator

A Message From Your Administrators

We warmly welcome you as a guest to our "New Home"!

Depressionforums.ORG is our brand new 'home' Since July 12th, 2004 and is still and shall always be the safe haven for all those who seek support and information on depression, mood disorders and medication since June of 2001. We are still the ORIGINAL Depressionforums and always will be depressionforums.org and .net.
Depressionforums was started back in June 2001
We had changed Domains in '04 from .com to .org, as we moved the Depression Forums.org to a brand new Invision Power Board  (IPB) back in Sept '05 and changed our servers as well.

With the major help of Coop; our wonderful Administrator/Technician/Webmaster back then.
LGJ: Our CEO and Managing Director; Lindsay; Founder and Forum Super Administrator; Past Admins and Mods who were of great help: 

Coop: Admin/Technician/Webmaster; Sheepwoman: Administrative Assistant; Lambvet: Assistant Administrator and of course with the past help of Emily, Ados, Michelle, Rasputin; our past Administrators and Technicians, we were able to develop our new DepressionForums.org IPB board.
Please bookmark this site in your favorite places.

We have just completed a Major upgrade with IPS now in 2016 (in which they now call themselves) and still have many "hiccups" to take care of.  @DF  is always the Safe Haven since 2001 and we shall always be.

 The Depressionforums.org is the ORIGINAL Depression Forums, a not for profit, free volunteer peer to peer discussion board on depressive illnesses, treatment options and support.

The Depression Forums mission is to continue to create an atmosphere that is both supportive and informative for our members, in a caring safe environment for members to talk to their peers about their depression, anxiety, mood disorders, medications, therapy and recovery.

Our vision is to advance the public awareness of mental health issues, so as to eliminate the stigma that is associated with depression and other mood disorders, preventing the stigmas through education and advocacy and not forgetting to strive to obtain that equality in health care coverage, as it is no different from any other medical illness.
