|Hi I'm Carla
I'm the host of
The Roller Coaster Room
A Social Community Of Peers Living with Mental Illness.
The website co-founder Alison and I both live with
Bipolar Disorder and both reside in Canada.
We created this website with the goal of providing a
relaxed, casual, social resource
for people living with mental illness.
We hope to help make it a little easier to cope with the
daily challenges and feelings of isolation that often occur
when living with mental illness.
It is my belief that sharing with peers can help lessen the
negative impact of the stigma and discrimination
that can be experienced by people living with mental illness.
We opened May 6, 2018
We are thrilled with the success of our little community so far.
Please join in and enjoy the excitement of this fresh,
new community full of new ideas and enthusiasm!
Many people who live with mental illness feel isolated
from society for a variety of reasons.
One of the goals of the Roller Coaster Room is to help
alleviate that isolated feeling with a fun, social platform
where adults who live with mental illness can socialize with

adults from all over the world who live with
Mental Illness and utilize the website to provide

|The Games Room
In the games room you find a selection of puzzles, card games and other
games that can help exercise memory and cognitive functions,
focus concentration and combat ruminating.
They can be helpful as a distraction from intrusive thoughts
and they can be a lot of fun too!
Have fun exploring what the Roller Coaster has to
