As you continue your health journey, you’ll find it helpful to seek support from the community, as well as offer support and guidance for others. We are committed to providing a safe space for members to share their stories, which you can learn more about in the Community Guidelines. The My Community menu is the place to go to connect with your condition community and other communities of interest on PLM.
Choose Overview from the drop-down menu to explore the Community on PLM. From the Overview page, use the menu on the left to easily browse and join Community Groups and events and meet members like you on PLM.
As you scroll down on the Overview page, we’ll display highlights from groups you have already joined, members you might want to connect with and any upcoming community events that might interest you. You can click ‘View all groups’ to see all of the groups that you have joined. You can even pin the groups to the top of the menu and your overview page for quick reference!
As you join Community Groups and jump into discussions, keep in mind that as with posts you make on your Home page, you can tag other members with the ‘@’ symbol in the discussions so they can receive a notification that you mentioned them. For example, to tag ‘member123’ in a discussion thread or group, you would type ‘@member123’ and choose them from the drop-down menu.
We encourage members to share relevant news stories, journal articles, and blog posts with the community. We do ask that members include a reference/link back to the source. Personal blogs can be linked when labeled appropriately. They can be shared in the discussion thread with the subject “External Blog Post: Your title here”. PatientsLikeMe is not responsible for the content of linked blogs.
PatientsLikeMe members are not permitted to solicit members or promote for personal gain, including for any medical research studies, projects or fundraisers. You can read more about the Policy on linking and solicitation here.
