  • Hey Meggles,

    Apologies, we usually leave the office at about 5:30 so we didn't pick this up in time. Please do sign up for the next one if you'd like to go.

    Hey Jess,

    I moved this thread to Problems & Suggestions where it fits slightly better, and hopefully this discussion will be of use to some others who might be feeling the same way.

    Firstly, I'm sorry to hear you felt ignored in yesterday's chat. I know we did chat about gender identity once before, and it can be nice to return to those conversations and continue them....

    Always ask questions!

    Another good point - I just added a 'will you be hosting with someone else, and if so, who?' section to the form, so if you just let us know in that section that's all you'll need to do.

    Cheers Lane,

    Mike...

    Stress Awareness Day - what's your advice?

    Hey everyone

    Once again we're coming to you guys to get your advice. For World Mental Health Day, we asked you all for some tips that we could make into graphics to share on social media. We're going to be doing a similar thing for Stress Awareness Day on the 1st of November, and we'd like to ask you this:

    What's your favourite way to unwind after a stressful day?...

    Support circle (24/10/2017)

    Hey everyone.

    The next Support Circle will be Tuesday 24th October, 8-9.30pm with the lovely Jo.

    What is Support Circle?

    For anyone who doesn't know, a support circle chat follows the same basic structure as a standard support chat session - opening round, support time, and closing round. Everyone that signs up will have their own time to chat and be heard by the group, and have their chance to listen and support others.

    Why go to Support Circle?

    It's a great space for people who find it difficult to get their voices heard in regular support chat and/or are keen to listen and support others in a more structured environment. We have places...

  • Hey everyone,

    Looks like there was a lapse in communication at our end yesterday, so thanks a mill for stepping in and posting this LaneBoi! It's so great to see you looking out for each other and keeping things running, even when we mess up.

    Thanks again - you guys are awesome. Loving the community spirit!

    New GC - your feedback!

    Hey everyone,

    So you'll have noticed by our other thread that we've been looking over the feedback you gave us during our last chat break week. You might remember, as well as our chat guidelines, we also asked you all about the new GC we've been running.

    These sessions are currently held on Tuesdays, and up until now have been chats where any of you can sign up to 'host'...

    Chat guidelines - your feedback!

    Hey everyone!

    During chat break week, we asked you to give us your feedback on the current chat guidelines. We wanted to understand your thoughts about them so we could potentially make some tweaks and changes to them. As a team, we've gone through all of the feedback we received and we've made a few changes.


    Part 1 - Eating and self-harm

    After reading through...

  • Hey Nova,

    Good question! You can only edit posts up to an hour after they're posted. After that, only moderators are able to change things. If you like, we can add some in for you - just drop us a PM or reply below with what you'd like added (and where).

    Are you aged 14-18?

    Hey folks,

    We're currently doing a survey on sex & relationships education in schools, and we're keen to hear from 14-18 year olds.

    How much do you know? What could be improved? What's missing?

    What you tell us could help influence future law around sex & relationships education.

    Give us your thoughts!
