Post of The Month (July)

Aidan is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Lucie,

You say you're still on medication and have had lots of therapy? Maybe it's a matter of revisiting old coping techniques and anything else like that, that therapy taught you?

And Drea is absolutely right! Even someone with everything material that they could ever want isn't insusceptible to mental illness. Any sex, race, age, class; it doesn't discriminate...

  • Chats Tonight (Thursday 07/09/2017)

    Hey everyone,

    Support chat and general chat are running tonight, both from 8-9:30pm.

    Support chat: A place to talk about anything on your mind in a safe, supportive environment. Amy and Tegan will be modding.

    General chat: A place for more light-hearted chat about pretty much anything be it TV, music, the weather, that hilarious video you saw on YouTube etc. Wayne will be modding.

    You can find the 'join' links on this page from 8pm.

    Have a great one!

    No password? Is this for real?
    SUCCESS is not final, FAILURE is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts

            can i just make a suggestion after tonights chat.. at one point there was over 23 people in support chat, all needing support. it was crazy people and because of that, no one was actaully being heard which isnt fair. i think if support chat was to get to busy it should be split into 2 rooms.. mod in each...maybe a 3rd to jump between. chat shouldnt be about friendship groups only supporting those in their circles. it should be about supporting everyone and aknowledging everyone. having 2 support chats can promote that friendship groups cant just support each other. but my point of this is..chat was far to busy and nobody was acutally getting support.

              Hey Meggles,

              Thanks for this feedback
              We noticed how busy chat was last night, and it does sound like the numbers made it quite difficult to be heard. We'll be running some discussions about chat next week during the chat break, so that'll be a good chance to talk this over a bit more. All the feedback we get will be used in our planning of chat and any changes we make in the near future

              In the meantime, the best place for feedback is the chat feedback form here. This is what we look at when we're planning, and it's a nice, central place to keep everyone's input

                i couldnt be bothered with the feedback form last night. i was too wound up over the fact people were coming out of chat feeling worse than when they went in and people who actually need support werent being heard.... want me to put it in a feedback form now or nah?
