AUTUMN 2004 HAS ARRIVED AT CITY PARK ONLINE!
It's our favorite time of year again! The leaves are falling, the air is cooling, and it's
autumn! We are especially excited, because it marks the end of 3 successful years of helping Internet users find
connections to other people, education, and resources. We hope to continue our hard work and help for others.
ENJOY SOME OLD FAVORITES
Our beautiful fall pages, An Autumn Day and Another Autumn Day are back. Take a few moments to enjoy the calming music, the beautiful pictures, and for a moment or two, be taken
away to another place.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS
If you have a desire to help others in your situation, please consider volunteering here at CityParkOnline.
We have been trying to build a resource center. This resource center would include links to national organizations,
and local therapists and treatment centers. It is almost an impossible task, as we have been working all summer, and
nowhere near done.
You can volunteer as little or much as you want. Even if you could donate a half an hour to
searching for resources, and helping us out, we would greatly appreciate it. All of your hard work will be acknowledged
publicly on the pages, and the benefits of giving back are their own reward. Would you please consider helping?
If you would like to help us, please send an email to email@example.com. We can't do it without you!
YOUR VOICE IS IMPORTANT TO US--CITY PARK POLL
Do you feel your voice is being heard? What would you like to say? We know that living
with mental illness or disabilities is challenging. We also want to know what is important to you, and know that your
opinions are valued. That is why we started our City Park Poll. Questions are posed about mental health issues,
and you are given many options to vote on. So, click on the link below, it's as easy as that, and make your voice heard!
HELP US HELP YOU
CityParkOnline's mission is to help others--particularly those suffering from isolation in its many
forms. If you are a visitor, and did not find what you needed here, we would kindly ask you to drop us a line.
Also, if you feel that we have overlooked a particular disorder or issue that you struggle with, we would like to know how
we could integrate that into our site. We are particularly interested in how people with addiction issues, personality
disorders, and other issues feel about our site. If you feel that we should include these issues in our site,
or have an issue you would like, please send us suggestions. Remember, this is all about you! You can even assist
us in the process. Please drop us a line: mailto:CityParkOnline@yahoo.com.
CITY PARK ONLINE INTERACTIVE
We have built CityParkOnline for you, our visitors. We want you to find connections in this
world. But, we also feel healing from your problems requires a little bit of you! That's why CityParkOnline wants
to recruit you! There is plenty of problems to be shared, burdens to be lifted, and input from you! We have a
private online community, and opportunities for you to contribute to this site. Breezy Corner, our members-input area,
is a place for you to express yourself. If you want to make friends, and be a friend, be a part of the online community.
It's fun, too! We have interactive polls, message boards, live chats, and plenty of other fun things to keep you busy!
Please be a part of the community! Simply e-mail us:
I had the idea for CityParkOnline, inspired by the Use Your Life campaign on the Oprah Winfrey
show. I am suffering from a form of isolation, and since I can't do much on the outside, I figured I would work from
the inside. I had an idea that I would give people who are suffering from isolation a fun site to visit. I wanted
to take you to the world that you feel so distant from sometimes.
This site was truly a labor of love. I enjoyed every second of it. I did all
of the research myself, searching many different engines for what I thought were the best sites, the best pictures, and the
like. Being a visual person, I started enjoying the pictures so much, I decided to add several pages. I want to
take you on visual tours where you cannot be physically.
When I thought about the mission of CityParkOnline, I tried to sum up what it was all about.
And this is what I have found. CityParkOnline is:
I started to add different picture galleries. I originally had the Garden as the only
picture gallery, but I enjoyed creating different parts of nature that you can enjoy. These will continue to evolve.
I also plan on updating the Geocities links and information pages, so that I can list more information, and take up less space.
So, enjoy CityParkOnline, and please join us in our private online community. We would
love to have you. All we require is that you are suffering from a form of isolation, or have someone you love who you
want to help. We are here to MAKE CONNECTIONS!

A SPECIAL DEDICATION
CityParkOnline carries out its work of helping those living in
isolation in memory of a very special young lady, LeeAnn. LeeAnn made a great impact on her time on this earth.
Even though her time was shorter than most, she lived a wonderful life. LeeAnn would want those suffering from mental
disorders to regain control of their lives, and that is why we honor her.
