r/MaDDSolutions partners with r/maladaptivedreaming

Sub poised for revival. r/MaDDSolutions was made about a year ago as a place for those wanting to proactively address their Maladaptive Daydreaming to discuss their methods, tips, successes and struggles without sifting through the more general content and questions allowed on r/maladaptivedreaming. Unfortunately it never quite took off. So the Mod there has shifted management to the larger subreddit, hoping a stronger affiliation will breathe life back into this community. We are looking to build a mod team there, we will need people willing to:Build the sub by giving it an identity; a wiki, sidebar, rules, mission statement etcSet pace and tone by providing content in the form of posts and comments.General mod duties of handling reports and ensuring content meets sub guidelines...

May is mental health awareness month

Depression and anxiety are two of the most common forms of mental health issues. On average, 1 in 5 Americans will experience a mental health issue this year. You are not alone.
