Introducing the Community Forum is pleased to announce the launch of its first online public forum/message board. The Community Forum is designed to be a safe place for users to connect with others, ask questions, get answers, and give and receive social support.

Topics on the Community Forum range from general chat/Q&A to specific mental health issues and treatment options. Registered users are able to create and respond to topic threads, send and receive private messages, post images, and create polls. Other features include a “friends and foes” option that allows users to highlight or hide specific posters. Users also have the option of subscribing to specific threads or posts to get instant updates.

The Community Forum is moderated daily. Please be advised that the forum is for general public use and is not intended to serve as professional mental health advice. Registering for the Community Forum requires a valid email address and is as easy as clicking here. For more specifics about how the forum works, please see our FAQ.

    Wonderful idea. I’ve noticed that the Dear GoodTherapy blog often contains beginning conversations.

    Always nice to have support of the GoodTherapy community in asking a question or just discussing about an interesting psychotherapy topic. Kudos for the new forum.

    This will be such a great addition to the site!

    I think that many of us come here, even when not seeking necessarily professional advice, but just to bend an ear and hear another person’s point of view on a subject.

    The community forum is a teriffic way to give more of thsi kind of participatory interaction to site users and I really do believe that there are a lot of people who can really benefit from this added feature.

    As long as everyone knows to take this as an added conversational piece and not necessarily as a solution for any problem that they need resolving, then that’s a good thing.

    While the Dear GoodTherapy was a good addition,it must have been impossible to reply to each of the queries posted by users.Now with a forum that is no more the case and the community in addition to the experts in the forum would be a very helpful element I’m sure. Great addition no doubt!

    A forum to discuss psychology and related topics sounds like a good thing.I cannot wait to talk to others,learn of and from people’s experiences and maybe even ask a few questions I have never asked anybody IRL.Thank you for bringing this forum to us,dear admin.

    forums are always a good way to interact and discuss with others.and a forum on a topic I am so passionate about is definitely worth a look at.will definitely check out the forum and hope to be a regular visitor and poster there.

    I am a therapist, and my employer expects me to allow fellow staff to interrupt therapy sessions in order for me to go to another room and meet a prospective therapy patient. Is this clinically and/or ethically appropriate?
    Thank you,

    I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for this wonderful forum and message board. As someone who has struggled with mental health issues for many years, it can be difficult to find a safe and supportive space to connect with others who understand what I’m going through.

    I was hoping to find a therapist that I can see due to having intimacy issues. I am also a survivor of sexual abuse
