I just know I went through 26 years of depression which turned into bipolar all because of something my grandfather said to my mom. I was so disillusioned by myself that it caused my life to fall apart. I think anyone in the same situation needs to recognize the problem first, and I think an open forum might help some people realize why things went wrong in their life and finally learn acceptance and to love themselves.

It sounds like a good idea on paper but it could also create a lot of issues with people saying insensitive triggering things to others perhaps with good intentions but lack of knowledge. It has to be either heavily moderated or it has to be more of a social group. I see it going all wrong in every way possible and causing issues instead of helping the case. Or it will be inactive due to lack of interest of being in a separate forum. Just my opinion of course

I've probably said some things that could be perceived as insensitive already, since I'm not in that situation.

But, I was thinking it was to be restricted to people in those circumstances. Time will tell if there's even any interest, anyway, Thanks for your thoughts.

I doubt they can restrict forum participation to people of particular race or ethnicity. That could come across all kind of wrong imho. But people can discuss these topics and on other subforums. Like coping with emotions etc or other mental health concerns etc

Maybe not, but I'm not going to worry about it now. I know the men's and women's forums are restricted. The forum might not even come to be.

Racial and ethnic segregation isnít the same as things designed separately for men and women. We have separate stores for men and women clothing and men and women restrooms. I personally donít think it would be appropriate to have separate stores or restrooms for specific races. Not the same.

So I donít think we can really compare having men and women forums to having separate forums for participants of specific races. I donít think itís appropriate. Maybe I am just not understanding what exactly is being proposed here. Separate forums for different races sound very scary to me. I pray we will never have such thing. Maybe itís just me and others think itís a good idea.

divine1966, I appreciate your comments, but I am through talking about this issue. You're right that gender is a different matter, but those forums were the ones that came to mind.

I am moving on to other matters in my life and on Psych Central.

What race, mix, ethnicity, color combo, or self identity would be the allowed participants?
