Post of The Month

"Hi there,

Welcome to the boards. Hope you gind it more helpful.

Its hard to find support, sorry that no one will take you to see your gp/doctor i am not sure if this is the same for you but you are aload to book doctors appointments without your parents being there and you can attend them unacccompanied.

Depression and other illness can be quite scary especially when your quite young. Do have a look round the site there are lots of useful articles and information on here.

You are not alone.

Sunday to thursday we have support chats and general chats on at 8pm till 9:30pm if you would like to join them. They are a great way to get to know people and seak support at the same time. Heres the link to the page -

Hope to see you round

  • Have feedback about chat?

    Had a particularly good or bad chat? Did you feel heard, supported and safe?

    Do you have any suggestions for how we could improve things?

    Whether you've had a helpful, unhelpful or 'meh' chat, we want to hear what you think.

    Your feedback is really important for us when we're thinking about ways to make chat the most supportive space we can. So we're always happy to hear your thoughts on what works well, what doesn't work so well and how we make it better.

    To help with this, we have a feedback form

    How does it work?

    The form will ask you a series of questions about your experience of chat. The more you can tell us the better! But we realise that you might not always have much time, so there are two ways to fill it out:
    • The debrief/rant/vent option to get out anything fustrating from chat (quite short, but write as much as you'd like) or
    • The express option for constructive criticism (if you only have a few seconds) or
    • The in-depth option* for constructive criticism (if you have a minute or two).
    * not all the questions are compulsory, so you can still complete it fairly quickly

    Is it anonymous?

    It is if you want it to be.

    Letting us know your username can be really helpful as it means it's easier to see how things change over time for you, and can also mean we understand your feedback more fully. However, if you'd prefer to remain anonymous, just leave the username box blank

    When can I use it?

    You can use this form any time and as many times as you like. So if you wanted, you could fill it out after every chat you come to!

    You can find the form here.

    Any questions? Feel free to ask below

    Hey everyone,

    Just a quick update on the feedback form..
    We've added a new question to the full feedback option asking which topics you'd like to see covered in future expert chats.

    Of course, you can also vote in our current poll

    Look forward to seeing your ideas!

        Last night I registered to enter Support Chat which I found very helpful, well moderated and lead by The Mix staff. Then aftter logging out, I went to visit General and saw I had to register again before being allowed in. As there are other chat rooms under various categories, will I have to keep registering my name, email address and password every time?

        Haven't ever been in a chat room before. Last night I found it daunting, but once I reached the chat rooms, I was fine.
        The greatest female power is empathy to create relationships on a personal level. It's better for a woman to come across as more nurturing, more warm, and that is going to lend more success to her than for a man doing the same thing.
