Post of The Month

Esme17 is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey. Hope you are doing okay?

I completely understand what you mean about feeling low mainly at night. like you said, It is probably because you have nothing else you need to be doing then and so have more time to think. Is there anything you could do that makes you feel slightly happier during this time (watch a film, read etc..)?

Do you know what is making you feel this way? I know you mentioned losing your nan which must have been really hard for you and Iím very sorry to hear that!

Iím not too sure what would be best for you to do in the situation but i would say it would be best to speak to someone like your gp because they could tell you for sure if it does need looking into more and even if it didnít, it would put your mind at rest a bit? I know how hard it can be seeing someone though so just make sure you do what feels right for you.

Remember you can also always come to the board to get support and to chats as well.

Let us know how things go? Iím sorry if this didnít help at all, I think I rambled a bit but I tried...

    Hey Lostsense!

    Yep, so currently the project is aimed at 10-18 year olds. We're not entirely sure whether that's set in stone, whether it might change, etc. as it's still very early on in development. I'll do some digging and update this thread if/when I have a bit more info on how rigid that age bracket is, because I know you (and no doubt a few others) have been waiting eagerly for this.

      Just a cheeky placemark for any updates on this service. Noticed that referrals are closed due to lots of applicants too!

        Hey both!

        So just an update here. For now it will be just 10-18 year olds, but we may get the chance to open that up to more young people later down the line. We'll keep you updated where possible.

        Apologies that wasn't the answer you were after, Lostsense! You're more than welcome to refer yourself to phone counselling though, if that's of interest?

        independent_, webchat counselling referrals are now open.
