wellpartners aims to be a support group for people who are in an intimate relationship with someone who has been diagnosed with a mental illness. Eating disorders, attention deficit disorder, bipolar disorder, social phobia, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, depression, narcissistic personality disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, everything goes. The primary goal of the community is to provide well partners - those who are romantically involved with someone suffering from a psychiatric disorder, but are not mentally ill themselves - with a place where they can share their experiences, exchange helpful information and receive support in times when it is needed. This community will offer its members valuable advice, support and a safe place to vent and be taken seriously. It should eventually serve to help those of us who are in a relationship with someone suffering from a psychiatric disorder to feel less isolated and more empowered.

Please tell your boyfriends, girlfriends, wives or husbands, friends and family, mistresses, lovers, spouses or anyone else who might be romantically involved with someone suffering from a psychiatric disorder. They’re all very, very welcome here.
