Default Please read: Mental Health and Well-being forum Information

Please note this forum will be moderated as deemed necessary for everyone's safety and health.

Mental health issues effect a number of people and in different ways, Moderators will be erring on the side of caution here and as such:
  • Forum members and users are not here in any capacity as mental health professionals, and all posts should be composed and read with that in mind.
  • While we completely understand peoples' sincere desire to help, any "advice" or "suggestions" (including about treatments etc) considered problematic or potentially detrimental will be removed.
  • Sufferer blaming, telling people to 'suck it up' or any flippant remarks towards others are not helpful and will be discouraged.
  • Please keep in mind this is a serious issue and needs to be treated as such.
Your understanding is appreciated.
