Feelingkindablue.ning.com is a social networking site established to serve those living with depression, anxiety, grief, emotional pain, and other mental illnesses. The mission is to reduce social isolation by making connections through experience sharing. Originally founded in St Louis, Missouri, members are able to share their everyday experiences, on good days and on bad. Members chat, create blogs, join groups, share artwork, music, and photos or sometimes they just observe. It's about connecting!
The American Association of Suicidology (AAS) has recognized Feelingkindablue.ning.com with the Association’s esteemed Excellence Award for Innovative Programming. “This program was selected due to the creative use of a social media site, effectively reaching out to young adults ages 18-28, providing support to individuals with mental health needs and the work they do in preventing suicide,” explains Pat Morris, LMHC, CDP and Crisis Centers Division Chair on the AAS Board of Directors.
