    Hello,

    I am (thankfully) without depression/anxiety/etc., but someone very close to me (name withheld) is having a very hard time (without going into detail of course). I was wondering if there was a portion of this site dedicated to those who want to learn to better support someone in their life who is suffering. I took a quick spin around and couldn't see anything specific—apologies if there is something! New here, new-ish to forums in general :)

    And I know this may not be the place but I also had questions regarding medications he is taking—how safe they are, pharmacology etc. Probably not the right forum but thought I'd try.

    Thanks!
    Jared
