Hey there :wave:
I've just updated this thread so that we can use it as a place to add more playlists :thumb:
First off, we were inspired by the mental health charity Sane who have been running a campaign in partnership with Spotify - it's all about how music can lift your mood :)
Sometimes sad songs with lyrics we can relate to, or that reflect our mood can cheer us...

I guess I've been feeling pretty good for the past few months....but fairly recently I've felt like some of the old issues I had are returning and hitting me rapidly quicker than I ever expected.
The last few months have been pretty stressful with changing jobs, etc but recently my family had a huge fall out and now no-one is talking to each other - although me and my Mum are talking. I stayed...
So recently ive been really stressed, depressed and anxious about, well, everything.
Mainly revolving around my job and where i should live. I so want to have my own place on day but dont think Im ready just yet. I used to be such a laid back 'we'll worry about it when it happens' sort of person but I have so many 'what ifs' going round and round I feel like its holding me back, and as well as...
I have been experiencing fear and irrational panic for way too long. I have one friend who I confide in the most and he is obviously telling me to see a therapist about it, but I'm too scared to go. He saw me have one when I was in Manchester in December. I had a headache when we were out and thought it indicated something bad and I completely freaked out and couldn't calm down until...
I came across this article called '9 Ways Technology Affects Mental Health' and thought it might be worth sharing.
While it's probably worth reading the whole thing, the 9 ways it says technology can affect mental health are:
1. Sleep problems
4. 24/7 stress
5. Fear of Missing out
I just gave all my knives, pills and alcohol to somebody, and now I'm awake. I'm panicky. There is an extra person in my head. I can't hurt myself in the ways I normally do. I've taken an antihistamine to help me sleep but I can't. I'm scared. Everyone I know is asleep or out doing something. I don't have any credit to ring someone like one of my sisters or the Samaritans or the crisis...

What are some personal questions to avoid asking ppl you're just getting to know?
Like when you only met someone a few times and started talking. Or coworkers. Where is the boundary between being friendly and getting too personal? Can someone give me an example? Thx
Just wanted to share a really insightful video that's been brought to our attention about deafness and the experience of a student who really struggled growing up, but has managed to find her confidence at university thanks to a supportive environment.
Do share your thoughts in relation to this - particularly about deafness more broadly, if you experience a hearing impairment...
Not really looking for replies as I know most of you think I'm a 'bad' person, which is understandable.
I've relapsed into my Eating Disorder recently - over exercising and hardly eating. It's really getting to me now, and a few friends have mentioned their concern.
All my clothes are just too big now, and I look stupid when I go out - even all my dresses drown me.
I guess I...
Title says it all really - last week I picked a mole, to prove a point...
I noticed today it's blistered and enlarged and is quite sore - just wondering if I should be worried and get it checked or if leaving it would be better.
Thank you :)
So recently I've had something weird start happening but with increasing regularity.
Within the first 2 hours of going to bed, I'll have these kind of nightmares, but I'm not sure what they are about someone being in my flat (I live on my own). I can see them there standing over me in alarming clarity, with a light on and everything. Then of course I wake up completely terrified and have to...

Hi everyone i recently attempted to commit suicide. Thankfully i came to my senses and went straight to A&E. I realized what was most important in life and what a stupid thing it was to do. While in hospital i planned out everything i needed to do to try and sort the issues what caused me to do it. I was very worried about the embarrassment and also how it had affected love ones. This i knew...

Placement, been there on my last block week finish on Friday, even placement has had its horrible days.. I was screamed at for comforting a child who fell right in front of me, like the leader screamed at me...
I'm not okay at all. I don't want to be alive.
I can't cope with the psychosis, I don't feel safe and I have no idea what's happening. It's my mum's anniversary on Thursday then Mothering Sunday. I can't manage on normal days, let alone two highly emotional days in such close proximity.
I am vile and evil. I don't understand why my mum and Isla had to die, it should have been me. Not two...
Hi, I am 46 year-old female who has been feeling like I am having a break down-or close to one. I work over 40hrs a week at a job I like; but it is demanding as far as nurturing patients; and listening to their concerns for them selves. I have a 19 year old son who is in 2nd year of college he is home for the summer. I have a hx of panic attack and mild depression. It just feels like every...
Sorry for posting another thread, my 'mixed feelings' thread is getting long now I don't like keep bringing it up. I have lots going on at the minute and I don't know what to do.
I have been unhappy at work for a while and I have sent my CV off to other places. I wanted to be pro active about it all, and so far it has helped but knowing I have to go back to work on Tuesday is really...
My Mum died of Cancer 2 days ago. I've never seen a dead body before but I couldn't stop crying. I feel like a part of my childhood is just gone.
I don't really have any real friends. My aunties just disowned me and all I really have is my Dad. Can't say I'm close to my Brother. I have Aspergers which makes life difficult as it and barely anyone understands how much it affects me. I've also...
Warning: This will contain a lot of diet stuff which may create triggering for some.
Just feeling frustrated with my diet at the moment, and feel that I'm trying so hard with it but I'm not getting the right results. I still feel fat in my stomach despite losing a lot of weight since Christmas and my BMI is suggesting it's healthy weight.
My Dad has gone away for the weekend so I am...
I am unsure of how to start this thread off, so maybe I will just explain what I am thinking/feeling.
I have messed up quite a lot recently, and I have lost friends, and said horrible things. I haven't meant any of those things though, I have been struggling with being paranoid and when people don't speak to me for whatever reasons I take it to wrong way, and I don't mean to be that way, I...
