    We're a very friendly bunch


    Messages and Helpful Advice

    Moodgym is a free online CBT program for people with anxiety and depression.

    Nervous about going to the doctor regarding your mental health? Use this great tool here to help you prepare! Thanks to River Shadow for finding this website.


    Confidentiality Rules

    If you speak to a doctor, teacher, tutor or another adult about a mental health problem, then they are legally bound to not tell anyone including your parents unless you are a danger to yourself or other people. This will generally only happen if you are actively suicidal or at risk of actively hurting someone else, they will generally not tell anyone if you self harm, however they will possibly have follow up meetings with you.
    If the person you tell feels they do need to talk to someone else about the situation then they will usually tell you first and go through the process of who they will tell and why with you.


    Moderation Message

    We all want TSR and especially the Mental Health Support Society to be a safe place for users to get support and constructive, helpful advice. We do not want anyone to get triggered or feel worse as a result of posts on the site, whether that would be a response to your post, or a separate post made by another user. It is for this reason that we have rules relating to self harm and suicide discussion.

    Please be mindful that there are users with a range of mental illnesses including eating disorders viewing this thread and spoiler any potentially triggering content, especially relating to food, weight and abuse. This can be done by adding the tags [spoiler]-triggering content-[/spoiler] If you could also add a vague description of what sort of content is in there that would be helpful, for example 'ED trigger warning'.

    Please note that our current policy is that any discussion of suicide or self-harm is not permitted, whether that's writing about contemplating it, or discussing methods. We also cannot allow code words to get around the suicide/self-harm discussion ban. It is important to note that this includes anything written in spoiler tags. Please also remember that posts that do not directly mention self harm or suicide, but imply or hint about it, may also be triggering for users.The reasons for this policy are:

    - We are not professionally trained to deal with serious, potentially dangerous issues like this. We feel that directing people to appropriate help is safer than posting on TSR about it.
    - Often messages about these types of feelings end up getting replies which are at best well-intentioned but unhelpful and at worst downright malicious. We would never want someone to be made to feel worse for posting about their feelings.
    - There is a real risk of both triggering other users and increasing dangerous behaviour by allowing discussion of self-harm methods etc.
    - We do not want TSR to be seen to be a site which encourages or promotes self-harm.


    Unfortunately, moderators are not able to monitor all posts in the site all the time, and therefore we rely on the report function to help us become aware of problematic posts. Intolerance or discrimination of any kind is not allowed and is not welcome on this thread- if you see a post containing these or anything else stated above, please use the report function to bring it to our attention and refrain from replying to these posts.

    If you have any queries about moderation, please make a thread in Ask the Community Team, and someone will reply to you as soon as possible.

    Has anyone experienced trying to meet a deadline while having severe depression? How did you get around it and force yourself to stay focused? I may be requesting a deadline extension next week but there is only so long I can get.

    As unhelpful as it sounds...basically just have to push through it. There's no quick fix or way around it.

    You have to just devote a lot more time to it. Take regular breaks and don't overwork yourself but it will take longer than usual. I handed in essays while psychotic so I understand. :hugs:

    Plan what you want to say in your essay, plan your time too. Take lots of breaks and reward yourself. Make sure you have at least 1 day a week of no work. All of those has always worked for me.

    Touch wood, my palpitations from yesterday have seemed to have stopped. Only had one or two since I woke up 2 hours ago whereas yesterday, I would have had about 10 or 20 by now.

    Have a good weekend everyone my inbox is open if anyone needs to chat. I'm just having a quiet weekend in with Callan and the cats because I'm cat sitting for my mum on Monday for nearly a week so I won't see them as much next week I'll see Callan every day since he'll drive over to my mum's after college for a few hours last time I cat sat for her was at new year and I panicked the entire time I was there but I'm feeling confident about staying alone this time. I'll just take each day there at a time
