"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

    Hello and welcome to The Mix forums!

    This thread is a quick introduction to who we are, what this place is for and how to get started.

    Who are we?

    We are The Mix community - a pretty mixed bunch of people who are interested in or affected by the issues covered by The Mix. We're from all over and all walks of life.

    Most of us are from the UK and between 13 and 25, but some are older or younger. We talk about things happening in our lives and provide each other with information, advice or just a friendly ear. Though, being an internet forum, we do have a whole section for general banter

    What is this place for?

    These forums are a moderated, judgment-free place to ask for advice or talk about anything that's affecting you or playing on your mind.

    We have forums for: We also have a Chat & Debate forum for more general topics.

    As well as discussion boards, we also run live chats most days, and of course, there's loads of information on all the areas above on the 'Get Info' part of The Mix.

    Getting started

    If you haven't already, you can register here.

    Make sure you've read our Registration Rules and Good Manners Guide as they'll give you a good idea of how things work around here.

    It might also be worth taking a look at our Mods and Moderating Policy.

    Why not fill out your profile a bit too? You can add some info about your interests, add a profile picture, an avatar and even a signature.

    Once you've done all that, feel free to get posting!

    Why not start by saying 'hi' and introducing yourself in our Introductions Section?
