Location for Health Discussion

Discussion of health related topics seems to me to be in a peculiar grouping and location.

“Health” is grouped with “Beauty” in “Beauty & Wellness”.

“Beauty & Wellness” is a subset of “Fashion & Apparel”.

So following that flow, health related discussion I related to fashion, apparel and beauty.

I suggest that Wellness be separated from these unrelated topics.

Quite a number of threads are initiated in Off Topic that are discuss difficulties that people have in their relationships. It is not surprising when suggestions there include seeing a medical, mental health, or counseling professional.

I suggest that Wellness be grouped with relationship into “Wellness & Relationships”.

There probably is some better optimization of the above mentioned forums. We'll take a look into it.

Great suggestion. I would love to see Health & Wellness as a forum of its own. I think it would attract a lot more discussion than the current organization.

speaking as a user:
if the numbers warrant it, i also would like to see health topics broken out of fashion & apparel (and perhaps merge beauty with fashion to bolster those numbers).
Don't talk about it, be about it

Changing "Beauty & Wellness" to "Health & Wellness" and merging Beauty with "Fashion & Apparel" to become "Fashion, Apparel & Beauty" would be my suggestion here. I'm open to any other ideas as well.

I wonder about the necessity or usefulness of “Beauty”. The words fashion and apparel are both neutral in principle. The word beauty seems to me to be quite loaded with strong variations based on culture, age, gender and other variables. I don’t see that inclusion of the word beauty provides benefit.

There aren't a ton of discussions I'd classify as "beauty" but they do exist and I'd like a clear home for them. Perhaps using "Cosmetics" or something along those lines.

Cosmetics sounds pretty neutral, and more clear as well.

Unless someone else chimes in with a better suggestion that's what we'll do then. It'll likely happen within the next week or so.

Apparel, Fashion & Cosmetics. I think apparel has the broadest audience so it should be first.

I’m hoping now that relationship discussion can be moved in with health. Relationship threads seem to be started in Off Topic.

They have themes like “My girlfriend and I fight”, “Why can’t I find a relationship?”, “My parents want to marry someone (fill in a blank)”, etc.

Commonly the ensuing discussion includes suggestions regarding someone getting counselling, seeing a psychologist, getting a referral from a physician, etc.
