    A simple chemical imbalance forum. I know I have it but, I don't know where it sits. I am prone to depression, the pills help. I could be bipolar. Or it may be a result of the people I have in my life. There are bad vibes around me. It's hard on the head.

    The current content could be made available as a "second tier" read only resource for people wishing to investigate further, or as an experiment, kept offline for a while, during which time, a new, improved, refreshed and simpler version of Psychlinks could feature discussions on positive lifestyle strategies.

    My reasoning is to try to appeal to the tastes of today's internet market that tends to look for simplicity and ease of navigation.
    Simplicity is key.

    The term "chemical imbalance" is vague and ambiguous at best and, although it is a way of understanding some mental health conditions and why certain medications help those conditions, it is not well supported by evidence.

    The fact that certain conditions are correlated with a reduction in certain brain chemicals and that medications which seem to increase those chemicals helps to manage those conditions may tell us that lower amounts of those brain chemicals are correlated with a diagnosis but they do not tell us whether that is the cause of a condition. It may be the other way 'round; it may be that having the mental health condition causes a reduction in certain brain chemicals.

    In reality, it is a lot more complicated than a simple "brain chemistry" theory suggests.

    And ultimately it is more important to understand the major symptoms of a mental health condition and to know what can help to manage that condition.

    So it's not so simple. Thanks for your reply.
