Many members here, especially the older ones feel things have changed on this site. Many seniors here of course write on different groups that are associated on Healthunlocked. as we all can suffer different conditions that have caused Depression and Anxiety.
Our lives seem to change and sometimes these needs move on as well. It would be sad that the oldies move on as they have a great deal of experience and understanding to those who are younger and also need that input.
Many on this site also have made friendships and look towards those to help them, and give support so there is no need for these members, old and new to leave the site. as they can always chip in and give a help and encouragement to a confused and possibly younger member who is looking for assistance in an uncaring society who still looks onto mental illness as a weakness and have no understanding. So it us up to us oldies to give support
It would be sad if people on site feel they need to leave because of changes as changes are part of life. personally I feel we are put on this earth to learn and help others on their journey through depression and associated illnesses. We all have the private messages section when we need to chat with people we know on here. That gives relief of a very nasty illness. That in turn acts as a safety valve for many with this mental illness.
