Welcome

MentaNet

The success of Mentalympians is entirely dependent upon the participation of a large number of people who are interested in mental health. It would be greatly appreciated if you are willing to show your support for this initiative by signing up as a member of the new social network: MentaNet.

As addressed below, the sign up process is simple and allows individuals who want to participate and remain anonymous to do so. Furthermore, content created by members and posted on MentaNetwork is only available to registered members as an added level of privacy.

Although members have the option of adding and sharing assorted information to their account profiles for other members to view, there are only 5 mandatory pieces of information to register as a member of MentaNet. After reading the Terms of Use, including the Privacy Policy, it is possible to register as a member in less than two minutes here by following these ssimple teps if you wish to remain anonymous to other members.

1. Enter your email address (which will be required for you to login);

2. Create a password (which will also be required for you to login);

3. Create a profile name (which is the only required piece of information that will be visible to other registered members, and still allows a member to maintain their anonymity if desired – the profile name must start with a letter);

4. Confirm reading and accepting the Terms of Service, (which also includes the MentaNet's Privacy Policy, respecting how your privacy is to be protected as a member); and

5. Enter your date of birth (this information will not be visible to other members and is only used to ensure eligibility, as minors are not eligible to be registered members) and click save;

6. Click 'skip' for the remaining pages. That is all!

The objective of MentaNet is to create an inclusive online environment where individuals with mental health issues, and others who are passionate about mental health, are able to participate in a safe, supportive and productive environment. Unfortunately, social prejudice and discrimination still exists in relation to mental health issues, and some people might only be willing to participate in such a social network anonymously. This is why members are not required to provide their names or other identifying information for the purpose of registration and participation.

At the same time, this social network is designed to provide registered members the option of posting appropriate information about themselves to other members, including their areas of interest in terms of mental health and links to their website, blog, Twitter account, and Facebook account if they wish. Each person's circumstances are unique, so carefully consider what information you wish to put on your profile.

Also, when a member opts to enter either their first name or full name on their account profile, other members will see this information and not their registered profile name.

It would be greatly appreciated if you are willing to support Mentalympians by becoming a member today and notifying your family, friends and colleagues who might be interested in this initiative.

Anyone with questions or suggestions related to this social network are invited to contact us.

Thank you for your consideration.
