What we Do
We provide a safe online environment for our members to be able to share their stories, find guidance and information, gain further understanding on mental health matters, and communicate with other like minded individuals. By creating this peer support network we aim to create a community for our members to be able to come to when they need help in improving their mental health wellbeing.
Our site is now open for registration! Come join our online community. You can share your story, ask for guidance and support, provide advice, and chat with other members who are online.
How we provide support
Write your own personal online journal or share your experiences with others. If you find it difficult to open up to others, then this could be the ideal platform to get out exactly how you’re feeling. You can also read others blogs and see how they could relate to your situation.
An open source of guidance and information about all manner of different topics. From coping mechanisms, to training opportunities, to playlists to help you. There is the central hub for all your needs. Have something you want to share? Then post it on the forum for others see.
Here you can jump in chat online with other members who are online. Join in with conversation, or just observe. Either way it could help. We also have our own Discord server for when you are fancy buddying up on an online game.
Online Training Courses
*Work in progress* We are looking to provide our own online training courses. Providing further education and training on mental wellbeing subjects. Watch this space to find out more.
