Who we are
Our website address is: http://www.parentalmental.com
Our objective is to create an honest forum for parents and caregivers to share their experiences and feelings while navigating our own mental health challenges, including mental illness.
In order to achieve our goal of honest discussion, we have implemented anonymous posting, where users are not required to add personally identifiable information, such as your name or email address, in order to ask a question or provide an answer.
We strive to provide peace of mind, comfort and a sense of trust for those using our forum.
Parental Mental does not provide medical advice and is intended for informational purposes only. It is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.
If you think you may have a medical emergency, please contact your health professional.
