Mental Health Social Members

John M. Grohol Hi, I'm Dr. John Grohol and I'd like to welcome you to the domain name, which was recently acquired by Psych Central. Psych Central is a community of people dealing with mental health, family, parenting or relationship issues, just like you or someone you care about.

We're the oldest and largest online mental health network today. We're run by everyday mental health professionals who are looking to help you find information and other people like you. We've been doing this for over 15 years now (yes, long before Google and WebMD) and we're completely independent, beholden to no outside investors, venture capitalists, or other businesses.

If you're looking for a community of people who truly care about you and will help support your (or a loved one's) needs, you have two choices here at Psych Central. Our largest community is our Psych Central Community, where you can find self-help support groups on dozens of common mental health, daily living, and relationship issues. We also have a second community called NeuroTalk that is smaller and focuses on neurological and related conditions (like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease). Both communities are closely monitored by a caring bunch of volunteers and overseen by Dr. John Grohol. Regardless of which community you choose (or both!), we encourage you to choose a username for yourself that you do not use elsewhere online. This will help increase your privacy as well.

If you're not here for community but instead are looking for reliable mental health information that isn't just someone else's licensed content, you've come to the right place. Over 95% of our 40,000+ articles are original, written exclusively for Psych Central and regularly reviewed for accuracy.

We're glad you found us, and we hope we can provide an equally enjoyable supportive experience that you were used to at
