Gender & Sexuality forum: now open!

Hey everyone,

You spoke and it was thus: due to popular demand and to celebrate Pride month, we're delighted to launch our new Gender & Sexuality forum!

Why not head over now and take a look around. Make sure you look through the guidelines (and add your own suggestions) and read all about the history of Pride

This is your space - feel free to make it yours and post away!

  • I feel like giving up

    i am so physically and mentally drained.. its exhausting and i'm struggling so much with everything. still waiting for the mental health team at uni to contact me and i don't know how much longer i can hold on for.
    i can't focus on anything that i need to do, my thoughts are going a million miles an hour and i have this desperate urge to harm myself all day..
    i just want my ground to swallow me up so i no longer exist.

    I know the way you're feeling is horrible right now, whilst you're waiting for the uni mental health team to contact you, why don't you try the 1 2 1 chats on here?

          I'm not to good with support but could start of by telling us more so i can listen at least☺
          And probably heard it all before, but trying to distract yourself to keep safe.
          I always feels like this and is horrible. So you're not alone in feeling like that.
          Do you have support from friends and family?
