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 :)

All I seem to be able to do is fail. Every little thing i do, i seem to fail. Normally I can find at least one thing I've done right but the last few weeks, all i seem to do is fail.
My parents are especially quick to pick up on my failings and do what they just love to do - compare me to my brother. 'oh by this time your brother had his first job. Are you ever going to get a job' 'oh your...
I'm being admitted into hospital tomorrow, my cardiologist rang me and the nurses on the ward are ringing me this evening/tomorrow morning. They are going to do some more tests on my heart with some procedures too which I'm not looking forward to but the drugs I've been on haven't been working and stabilising things as they should have been.
I know It's important I go in and I've been in before...
I have decided to start running, I just went for a run for about 30 minutes. I decided that it's gonna be good for my physical health and my mental health.
The only thing that I am worried about is I have tendonitis in my legs and sometimes even walking is painful. I am just wondering if any of the runners on here have any tips on best ways to get started, and also any tips to...
I'm going into hospital for anothr biopsy and last time I went for a biopsy I was shoved into a male ward which made me just as discomforted as male restrooms did. I really don't want to be discomforted everytime I've to be admitted to hospital and identify as, dress as and act like a biological female.
Is there anything I can do? I shouldn't have to live in discomfort.
So, I'm kinda new here, as in I've literally just joined. But I hope to actually gain some friends on here because, I dont think I have any.... I mean I have friends in college and that but when I'm not in college its just me. Nobody texts me or inboxes me on facebook or tweets me on twitter or invite me anywhere on weekends or half term... I end up just doing work or listening to music all day....
I've been on Quetiapine for the past 18 months and am considering coming off it. I have a bipolar 2 diagnosis, which is characterised by periods of hypomania and mostly depression. My life was really stressful before and I had to cope with bad relationship, stressful job and so on... I'm now doing a part time masters course and work part time.
Reasons I want to come off:
I want to feel...
I was just wondering if anyone has any tips to make staying awake easier? I have been napping and I'm going to carry on napping at some point during the days as I would like to be awake at night time. I was thinking about caffiene tablets but I'm not entirely sure at the moment because I want to see if there is anything else that could help first.
I'm 14. It think I have depression and anxiety. I've looked on lots of websites that have symptoms and examples of situations you could be in and how you would react. I have days which my sister calls 'those days' where I feel a content urge to repeat actions until I feel like im/everyone is 'safe'. I also don't like going to some places where it's highly likely people I know will be because it...

Shared this in chat earlier and it went down pretty well so thought I'd share it here too, JPick found this earlier in the week and Helen and I got slightly addicted to it.

I am creating this thread on behalf of Ella. Today is her beautiful daughters birthday, my goddaughter, but there is no child here to open presents or blow out candles. Isla is missed every single day, and Ella wants to make sure that as many people know about the awful disease that killed her as possible. Knowledge is the first step in the fight for a cure.
Meningitis can infect anyone, of...
I know I made a thread a couple of days ago but I really need help. I just saw a person, and I know they can't have really been there, my dad says they weren't there, and it makes no sense for a person to be there, but I saw them, and I'm basically panicing now. I'm really scared because the voice is telling me that it was real but I don't know, I can't think! If it was real then I'm in...
I'm not at work at the moment, and I haven't been for the last 6 weeks. To a cut long story short, I'm in a wheelchair and have been for the last month which has took some adapting to. It's not forever and I should walk again and hopefully be back to myself with treatment, as it's my heart that is not functioning and working how it should, but for the meantime the wheelchair is always by my side....

Hi, thanks for reading... i'm not really sure what I'm meant to say.. I haven't done this before but I really need help. I can't talk to anyone.
I have a mental disorder, its not a very bad one but I can't really function at the moment, and I'm losing the will to fight it. It seems pointless. I am on meds and have therapy but I'm not getting better yet and I really just want it all to end, I'm...
So after spending numerous nights at 'place of safety' suits around the south-west and visits to general hospitals through overdoses and other forms of self-harm, I spent three weeks in a pyschriatic ward and two weeks at a pyschriatic crisis house. Its come to the time when I've decided 'No more'
My doctor isn't a big fan of giving me medication, she only gives me my sleeping tablets in...
We're in app creating mode here at YouthNet and our most recent venture is developing an app that will help young people cope with stress. We really want the app to feature some general stress coping tips/techniques from young people. Soooo, it would be fab to hear some of your techniques - all ideas (big and small) are welcome and greatly appreciated.
Thank you! :thumb:
...or at least I think it may be.
Hi, everyone. I'm typing this because I Googled something like "I'm so upset all the time" and found a link to someone's thread on here and thought it would be a good idea to make one too. As I type this I have been on a major, major, major low for a good couple of weeks and the past week I have cried every day around the same time and I really can't see...
