"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

  • Job date mistake in an application

    I spnt ages on an application, submitted it then realised I made a mistake with date of when I started my current job. I started at the start of the year but said i started in 2015. Reason this happened is because I previously applied to this organisation before I had my current job and it had my job history so I moved the past jobs down but forgot to change the start date of my current job when I entered that in. I've emailed HR and the hiring manager to tell them it's a mistake and asked if I can amend it but is this likely to count against me? Especially if they think I lied to make it look like i have more experience than I actually have.

    Hey Ybe7,

    I'm sorry to hear about what happened about your job application, but you're not alone small mistakes like these can happen to anyone and that's okay. You mentioned that you emailed HR and the hiring manager to let them know which sounds like a good thing to do. If anything, it shows that you're honest which can be something people look for when hiring someone.

    Best of luck with your job application, I hope you get the job
