"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

  • Finally got an interview, any advice please?

    Hi, So I finally got an interview as a kitchen assistant in a pub, it's this Friday, anyone got any ideas on what to say or what would impress them? Would really, really appreciate it

    Hey Distraction!

    I've never had a job interview myself, so I can't really give any advice from my experience :\

    Maybe someone else more sociable than me can 😂

    Have you checked the page the mix has on this?

    There'll be plenty of other online stuff too

    Good luck with the interview! Let us know how it goes
    Tough times never last, but tough people do

      Hey Distraction, congratulations on getting an interview. Wishing you the best of luck for it, let us know how it goes
      That article Aidan linked you to has some great advice and tips about job interviews that might be helpful to read through. This bit of advice is really good:

      Think of examples

      Saying, ‘I’m a really creative person’ doesn’t make it true. But saying, ‘I’m really creative. I have a photography blog I update three times a week’ will make an interviewer trust you. If you’re really a ‘team player’ you’ll need to demonstrate it. What kind of team? And what did you actually do that made you such a great teammate?
      Before the interview, make a list of the questions you might be asked and work out how you’d respond with examples.
      What helps for some people is to prepare some example questions and answers and practice reading through them. There's some great example questions on Prospects website here. It can also be good to think of a few questions to ask them at the end to show you're interested about the role

      Best of luck!
