    Hiya,

    Just wondering - why is it we have a full area in the forums for physical health, but not for mental health?

    I feel dumb posting about mental health queries in "general advice".

    In this day and age - can we help the stigma, reduce the shame, and make an area for mental health, the same way as physical health? Please.

    Thank ya very much

    Love love

    Sorry for the late reply, but I just thought I'd chime in and let you know that we have been thinking about this. :slight_smile: The reason that we have a sub-forum for physical health is that we previously had professionals in that field that could help out with those specific questions. This isn't the case anymore unfortunately, but the title got left over. We weren't intentionally trying to place physical health above mental health issues.
