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...

Here at TheSite.org we have a commitment to looking out for those who are affected by self-harm - whether you're harming yourself or know someone else who is harming themselves. Members of our community and TheSite Leaders have come to an agreement about how you can use our message boards and live chat to get help, while considering the feelings of others who are reading and responding.
There's so much going on in my life right now and no one seems to understand what impact it has on me. Everyone expects me to be happy but that's mainly my doing. I put this sort of mask on to try and make everyone (mainly my carers) that I'm happy. Really I just feel so low
I don't know how much longer I can cope feeling like this :( and before anyone asks that doesn't mean I'm going to end...
Last night in support chat I asked people where the best place for like counselling is in Manchester, **helen** replied with 42nd Street. I've previously looked them up online and thought I should do some more research into the place, but never did. Last night I did that research and I want to ring them and ask if I would be able to go there to get help. I was planning on doing it today, however...
Can I just start off by saying I don't want hate by posting this. It's been really hard for me to post this as some people know. So please be respectful
So I hate myself, the way that I look and I struggle eating because I know as soon as food enters my body it will make me fat
The thing is, I've recently been told that I may not be able to do my uni course next year if I cut my food out...
Finally getting help for my anxiety and panic attacks. I've been having panic attacks for two years, but the last three months for me have been really stressful so I feel depressed too. I went to the doctors and they're referring me to a CPN, who I'll be seeing soon, hopefully will hear from the clinic on Friday.
Any these last 3 months, I've recently graduated from uni but am...
Written so many poems about my bampi recently... its all hurting... I dont even want to celebrate my birthday because its so close to the anniversary of his death...
I wonder what you thought about
That day you slipped away
Did you know that it was coming
If so why didn't you say
Did you reminisce about good times
Did you think about your life
Did you look back at your childhood...
It's been awhile since I've posted on here, which I thought was some kind of achievement for myself because I felt I hadn't felt down enough to have to ask for help. But, to be honest, I think that things have got a lot 'worse' and I've just been shutting myself away from the help. Just tonight , I have really realised how depressed I am. This realisation might have been helped by the fact that...
I over think way to much that is good for me and obsess over my thoughts too. But I came across this piece of advice from a video that was looking into ocd and thought it could helpful :)
It went a bit like this - sorry if it's confusing or comes across weirdly it's a funny analogy involving cake and clouds.
Treat your thoughts like the clouds in the sky. Clouds appear whether you like it...
So, I have been struggling with anorexia for about a year now and I just can not take it anymore. I've become even more depressed than I all ready was and I now have scars running down my thighs... It was exactly this time last year that it began and by a week into September I was ready to kill myself. There was actually a lot leading up to it ever since 5th grade.. From 5th to 8th I was bullied...
Hey guys! My name's Erin. I may just be a small blip here, but I was wondering if anyone knew of anything in the USA that helps people who struggle with self harm. I'm glad that in the UK there seems to be so many resources, but I'm in the States. I have heard that in the UK there's a 'Crisis' team in each town, most self harm support, groups, ect I look up online- ALL are in the UK. The only...
I may have to have major surgery on my gullet and it will be like a 3 - 4 week stay in hospital, I don't like hospitals at the best of times, don't get me wrong the staff do a fantastic job I just don't like hospital settings. Plus I have a big concern, I don't think I can do a hospital stay!
I noticed some people have been feeling quite blue recently so I've been searching the web for things that may help and came across a site called 100 happy days. It's a really cool idea actually and I've just signed up for it. All you have to do is post one picture that makes you happy for 100 days. The picture has to be different each day cause I guess they are trying to help you see...
I came across an interesting article about a study investigating the link between chronic pain and depression:
Worth a read if you're interested!
I'm low. Really low and I don't know why. Nothing drastic has happened for my to be this upset, but even people around me are beginning to back away from me because I'm not as cheery as I used to be. I've been shouted at because apparently my voice has lowered in volume? I don't get it. Life at the moment sucks. I want to start fresh and find new people to fill my life with. People think I'm...
First of all I'm sorry for making a topic about me I shouldn't be so selfish but I kinda wanted to get this out...and I have barely any confidence on here so please don't judge me or anything like that. :/
Trying my best to hold it together but i can't. I have a holiday next week which I can't wait for but after that I've got nothing left. I hate college so much i don't want to go back for a...
Guys please, someone has to help me.
I haven't self harmed for long, about a month, and my mum has found out. She saw some cuts I have on my hip, but now she is ASKING to see the cuts on my thigh. I CAN'T SHOW HER. She'll be wrecked, and to be honest I can't believed she even asked to see them. I mean, it's kind of private! I feel she's being really insensitive, but I don't know what to do?...
Hello I need a credit rating because I want to go into private housing due to social housing not having stuff that I require for a quality of life. Thing is I've no proof of income otherwise I'd just get a credit card, spend a little, pay back for a base credit rating.
I'm going into self employment so I am not in a job or anything, what do I do? I have no credit rating and know that most...
Our friends at the pregnancy charity Tommy's have let us know about their resources specifically for 16-19 year-olds - in particular a book that you can order for free via their website.
Here's a link to take a look - https://www.tommys.org/shop?&nccsm=21&__nccspID=873
We have a hard copy at TheSite towers and it looks really good. :thumb:
I am having a panic attack right now. On the way to Leeds uni for the residential and I am totally panicking. What if people don't like me? What if I make a fool of myself? What if I've left something I need at home?
Plus I've been told that I have to eat the meals provided or I will be sent home... Jesus. I wasn't even panicking this much when I was going to London!!

Hey, So My mum about a month ago broke up with her fiance who was like a father figure to me as i had no dad in my life, He cheated on her, so she found a new guy who's ok, But .. well she isnt spending any time with me she's either out with him or when she's home calling and texting so i cant really speak to her.
I told her i was emotionally drained, the next day she swore at me and screamed...
I've recently started therapy and just opened up about my eating disorder they wanted to refer me to the ED clinic but I said no as I hate talking about it. I feel so embarrassed by it and disgusted in myself does anyone else feel like this when talking about it?!
How can I be more open about it without freaking out?!
I feel so stupid and embarrassed posting this. I've not been open...
I'm stuck awake
Very very awake
Looking at my ceiling but it's dark so what's the point
Eyes won't close
Anyone else so suffering this tonight???:crying:
I know quite a lot of you self harm and want to stop which is great. I was looking for something for a friend this morning and came across this http://butterfly-project.tumblr.com Its a really good project and I'm sure a lot of you would find it useful ;)
I will continue to look for different projects that may help you guys. If anyone else has ideas please feel free to post them :)
I just feel so alone. I've been crying for the past hour because I just feel like I've got no one. All my family hate me and only one of my college friends actually want to see me. No one loves me and no one cares.

I been with the company for 2 and a half years. Currently, I work with 17 others in my dept and 2 ppl snubs me. That makes 15 that talks to me but I can't enjoy it, especially when the 2 ppl and I work the same shift. They just keep hurting me. Abby and jane talks to everyone else though, so there's also the jealousy factor on my part. I tried several times attempting conversation with Abby and...
So I've been quite well over the last few months. I can't remember the last time I self-harmed or felt suicidal. My mental health problems still exist but I feel like I'm coping a lot better. Which is great! I've survived insane deadlines and my most important exams to date (although haven't had results yet - eeeeek).
I basically told the CMHT to go fuck themselves after getting 3...
