New e-mail list for emotional support for blind people

Hi everyone,
I've just created a new yahoo group for those who are blind and need emotional support. This could be with regards to everyday stresses, or for those who have diagnosed mental illnesses. As someone with depression and anxiety who is also blind, I know the struggle to find services that will be accomidating to the fact that I'm blind, and how sometimes those that work for blind services don't understand mental illness. I'm hoping this group can be a safe judgment free space where we can come together and share resources and give and get support.
Below is the link to the group.
http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/blind-mentalh...
I hope someone will join.

I'd love to have some AFB people on the list! It would be good to have you on there. It doesn't seem like people are on this board that often.

Hi there. Do you need to have a yahoo email address to join this group?
You may try putting a notice up in the Matilda Ziegler magazine for the blind. I'm sure a lot of people will be interested once they know it exists.
