Hello, my first name is Carmela Rheea and I go by Rheea.  I am the creator and Administrator of a discussion forum designed for those with a Mental Health/Behavioral Health diagnosis to meet and socialize with others just like themselves and to help one another overcome the stigma of being labeled.  This is entirely built as a peer support community.

As of right now, I am actively building the forum from the ground up using "Invision" forum template rather than using an already-made message board for more control and security.  I am struggling with designating categories, forums, topics, and blogs - needing ideas for discussion.

I have opened up permissions to allow unregistered guests view what I have up and share what can be added.

If you are interested in taking a peek and have someone in your life carrying a diagnosis, please leave an email using my contact info.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you.
