This is the website of Mental Health in the UK, which aims to reform ideas about people with mental health problems by informing with “creativity, talent and imagination”, writes Helen Waddell. Visitors are invited to join its “thriving online community” and are encouraged to post contributions (poetry, prose and stories) which make up a large part of the site. Questions, thoughts and problems are also welcomed as part of this online forum. The “check-in desk” explains the site’s basic rules in an easily understandable fashion, and uses bright, cheerful graphics that lift the mood.
Helen Waddell is a mental health service user.
