ForLikeMinds - the first online peer support community dedicated to mental illness - is dedicated to the recovery and wellness of people living with or supporting someone with mental illness, substance use, or a stressful life event. It allows members to connect and communicate one-on-one and in groups based on shared conditions, events, and a broad range of demographic attributes. These additional personal attributes include age, location, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, language, religion, education, occupation, student status and military status. This person-driven approach facilitates more relevant and relatable connections. Members in similar circumstances share their lived experience to rekindle hope, inspire, and inform each other’s recovery journeys. The recovery journey starts with hope and is nourished by the support of like minds sharing their lived experience.
