At PatientsLikeMe, members should always feel safe and welcome. We are committed to providing a safe space for our members to share their stories without judgement or harassment and we will not tolerate content we’ve determined to be disrespectful or discriminatory.
We don’t allow posts that discriminate against someone based on race, age, gender identity, religion, or sexual orientation.
Be kind to all.
Be respectful. Bullying, personal attacks and hate speech are not permitted. Please don’t use profanity.
Sharing your experiences with your health condition is allowed. Telling others how to treat their health conditions is not. Our moderators will help if you’re unsure how to share without giving advice.
Linking & Solicitation
Soliciting members for money, research, or other personal or commercial interests is not allowed. Linking to sources where you have a personal interest or stand to gain from is not allowed.
