Don't get me wrong - I do enjoy reading information that comes in light which are related to the mental health issues. Some of them I find so interesting to read.
A public forum is only to serve for everyone else to participate in it rather than letting everyone else stay on the fence being unsure of what to say just because it is unsettling for a certain member. It shouldn't be like this at all.
Also another thing is -- This forum is not the place where a person can come to ask for professional help. We cannot help him/her with that. They will still need to see their counselor/psychiatrist.
That is why I brought this thread up to make it clear that it is still ok to discuss about mental health issues but at the same time, at least - to bring some respect for other threads that has nothing to do with mental health issues.
As for walking on the eggshell - We shouldn't be treated like this or to deserve this.
