Sharing the link to the Mental Health Resource Center Edit

Hey there! I work in the Community Resilience & Sustainability team of the Wikimedia Foundation. I am writing to you today to let you know about the Mental Health Resource Center in case you find this resource useful. This is a new group of pages on Meta-wiki aimed at supporting the mental wellbeing of users in our community. This project is the result of the work of a Human Rights intern at the Wikimedia Foundation, who wrote a Diff blog post about it.

While we previously provided helpline contact information for people who are in an active crisis or near-crisis, the team’s goal is to provide additional resources to offer mental health and wellbeing information in a number of languages, covering a wide range of topics. Our hope is not only to help people who are in crisis, but help prevent crises.

As with the Helpline information page, the Foundation’s Trust and Safety team is tasked with maintaining the pages. They will do a quarterly review of the content, which will include reviewing any recommended changes left on the talk page. Because this is a page they send to people who are in crisis, for liability reasons they do have to review substantial changes. However, they very much hope for recommendations and ideas and especially notes of problems.

The Resource Center contains the helplines, a glossary of mental health terms, and resources divided by category with supported languages listed next to each resource. There is also a table available if community members wish to view the resources sorted by language. The hope is this resource expands over time to cover more languages and cultures. Currently, translations into several languages are underway. Best, JKoerner (WMF) (talk) 17:33, 6 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

When you click on a red-linked user page Edit

When you click on a red-linked user page on meta, even if it's not your own userpage, you get the message:

You're about to create a global userpage!

This page will be your default global user page and will be displayed on any Wikimedia project where you do not have a local user page. Please don't create pages with promotional content as they will be deleted.

I think this should be changed to avoid stating that it's YOUR user page if it's somebody else's. Kk.urban (talk) 06:36, 27 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
