Peer Support Health Community
Philosophy / Website Intent
HealthfulChat is dedicated to the philosophy that medical attention combined with peer support in the case of illness, disorder or condition, both physical and/or mental, helps to make the healing process more attainable. That philosophy is why this eclectic peer support network was created. We are offering you health related Chat Rooms, health related Forums and a health related Social Network; all in the name of this online peer support society.
HealthfulChat covers an array of illnesses and conditions, from Pregnancy and Infertility, Cancer, Obesity and ADHD, to Depression, Anxiety, Stroke and HIV and AIDS, to name but a few. Each individual illness or condition is separated into a community of its own so that you can connect with a worldwide population of peers to meet, greet, share and support. HealthfulChat also offers you off-topic chat rooms such as the Lounge, Sports, Philosophy and Technology to give you a break from primarily talking about health related concerns. If you're in the mood for some fun, you can also utilize the Trivia channel and challenge others in a game of general knowledge. In its entirety, HealthfulChat is pleased to offer you forty different Chat Rooms, all of which are listed in the menu above.
HealthfulChat recognizes that all people are unique, and their preference to how they connect with others varies. That is why the three forms of communication (the Health Chat Rooms, Forums and the Social Network), have been created to match each individual person who comes to this site. Please select which means of communication suits you best:
Some people prefer the slower pace of the Health Forums to the more quickly paced Chat Rooms, which is why HealthfulChat is pleased to present forums accompanying each ailment or condition listed. Using forums to communicate with others is a wonderful way to connect with people when you have the time to write thoughts in detail, and read and respond to posts. If you are someone who desires to give and gain support but finds it difficult to carry on a live conversation, the Forums are a great place for you to start here at HealthfulChat.
Enter a Health Chat Room to connect instantly with others. Every chat room is designed to offer you immediate contact with people when you feel the desire to talk to someone right away. All you need to do is join HealthfulChat's network, type in a nickname and begin chatting. The Chat Network is moderated so there is always someone that can be notified if needed. It is also open 24-hours a day and is filled with people who wish to be there for each other to offer support and guidance through good times and bad.
Perhaps after utilizing the Health Chat Rooms and/or Health Forums, branch out to the Social Network aspect of HealthfulChat to stay connected with those you've befriended through the Chat Rooms and Forums. HealthfulChat's social network enables you to create your own personal profile, share photos, videos and stories, as well as sending both public and private messages to new acquaintances. The health related Social Network can also be used to write a personal blog. A blog is an online diary where you can share your feelings while still remaining anonymous.
We hope you enjoy your experience here at HealthfulChat.
