Last update: Sept 1; Count: 102

This is a continuously updated list of communities dedicated to health, or specific diagnoses, from all around the Lemmy network.

There are some disclaimers and notes below the list. Check them too.

How to use links?

If you’re having problems with some links (such as a “community not found” message), see the FAQ on this post. I had to remove the dual links due to the character limit.

Notes:

  • I’m not vouching for any of these communities, check at your own discretion. Some of them are abandoned or inactive, so if you see one without activity that might be interesting, consider bringing it back to life and crosspost here. Communities with no content whatsoever aren’t included.

  • Work in progress - let me know if you know of new communities that aren’t in the list, or if you have other feedback.

(1) Kbin is a different network from Lemmy. Interactivity may be limited or delayed.

(2) These instances aren’t federated with lemmy.world. To interact, you need to have an account on an instance that federates with them.

Important: Some instances may gravitate towards politics or philosophies different from your own. Inclusion of a health community of any instance does not mean endorsement of that philosophy.

    Hi there, I created the Friends and Family of Persons with Addiction community (fafopwa). The vLemmy instance that it was hosted under is no longer working. I have re-created the community on the Lemm.ee instance. Please update the link when possible to:

      Ok I’ll update it. Btw no content is showing when viewing through lemmy.world yet. You should probably make a new post so people can see something there.

        Thank you! I made a new post. Can you confirm that it is visible now? I checked the visibility through my lemmy.world account and it still doesn’t show up as a post for some reason. Maybe it takes a little bit.

          Unfortunately no, I don’t see it on lemmy.world or lemmy.ml. Looks like there’s a federation problem. I’ve noticed the same with communities on lemmy.blahaj.zone or social.fossware.space, but also between lemmy.world and lemmy.ml. I have no advice to give, admins know there are these issues. I guess consider making the comm on lemmy.world or sh.itjust.works, these two have the most amount of active users and seem to work well together.

          Ed: Or just wait until they resolve it.

    Thank you for this! Great service :)

      Glad it’s useful. I’ll be adding some more, just took a break to do some memes.

    Oops. I have tried many of the links and keep getting 404 errors. I am new here and I’m not sure if it’s me or the links. Help, please 🙏

      Hm I see the kbin links are broken. Dunno why, they were working yesterday.

      This instance and Lemmy/kbin interoperability is still a bit dodgy.

      Since you’re from kbin, you can access them directly I guess. I’m not sure how to access Lemmy communities from kbin. Among Lemmy instances, if the distant community isn’t discovered yet, one may need to search for its url. Maybe it works like that on kbin too?

      Either way I guess I’m gonna add non-local links too, at least for browsing. Gimme a couple hours to figure it out…

      Ok I reformatted the list to include both absolute and local links, and added a section how to use them. See if you have more luck.

    I hit the 10k character limit, so now on top of everything I need to split this list in two.

    I might do that another time. For now, the work is on hold.
