Issues related to mental health have been stigmatized by societies worldwide. According to WHO, various mental health problems affect one in four people. This has a huge impact on many aspects of human functioning, resulting in decreased productivity, which in turn affects economy, social life and other aspects of one’s existence. If you combine this with the fact that most countries have insufficient policies in place, regarding the preservation of mental health, you’re starting to understand that this isn’t something to be treated lightly. Luckily, with the help of the Internet, people suffering from mental health issues are able to seek help with various entities, utilizing technology to achieve peace of mind.
Online communities centered around common interests spring up all over the Web. Those, which are able to stand the test of time and thrive usually do so by offering their members, and sometimes even lurking guests, something of value. What’s important and beneficent to the growth of these communities is steady communication and the opportunity to interact on the regular. Bear with me to learn about a site attracting violin enthusiasts, that decided to bring its visitors closer together by implementing live chat.
