Support Circles on Sundays

Hey everyone,

We're going to be running support circles once a month on a Sunday! At the moment they run on Tuesdays, but for one of those Tuesdays, each month they will be running on a Sunday instead.

This next Sunday support circle will be on 26 November. If you'd like to come along, (sign up by completing the form here )

Chatwee Update

Update - There's been some technical difficulties launching Chatwee onto our website so we will not be moving to Chatwee on Thursday.

As soon as we fix this issue, we'll announce another date for launching. We're really sorry for the delay in Chatwee, thanks so much for your patience.

Post of The Month (September)

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

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

  • Sign up to our Confidentiality Pledge

    Here at The Mix we take your confidentiality really seriously. We want to make sure that The Mix is a safe place for everyone so we're asking everyone to sign up to our confidentiality pledge.

    By signing the confidentiality pledge you're agreeing to help keep The Mix a safe and anonymous space for everyone, including you!

    The pledge

    What is said on The Mix is not repeated/posted elsewhere

    We want you to feel confident that anything you share won't appear anywhere else.

    By signing the pledge you agree not to talk to others about what someone has said on The Mix anywhere else. (E.g Social Media)

    Don't bring something that someone shares elsewhere into a discussion on The Mix without their permission.

    Your privacy is your responsibility

    Think carefully about when you decide to give out your personal information and who you give it to.

    If you keep your communication within the boards, chat and PMs then we can keep you safe.

    If you connect outside of The Mix then your privacy is your responsibility.

    Chat pledge: Keep private conversations out of chat
    Mentioning in chat that you're also talking to someone outside of chat (E.g Facebook) can make others feel unsafe.

    It can cause them to worry that something they share might go outside of the room.

    If you want to talk to someone away from chat then do so but please keep private conversations separate and don't mention them in chat.

    By replying to this thread you are agreeing to use The Mix in the spirit of this pledge

    If you'd like to send us any thoughts/feedback on the pledge then you can PM The Mix Staff Account.
    We're Aife & Mike: the staff team here at The Mix.
    If you have any questions about this place, feel free to
    ask over in the
    Help Desk or send us a private message.

                        What will happen if someone signs the pledge but then breaks it?

                          Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow

                          Think ability, not disability

                              Thought I'd throw in a pancake flip for good measures
                              People not believing in you doesn't mean you can't achieve it. Where the most inspirational spirit lies is within you; believe in yourself even when everybody else doesn't!
