It depends what you need really - as the PSV team, we can direct you to sources for support, if that would be helpful to you?
Yh. I guess. I don’t want to share my problem here tho

Peer Support Volunteers
Ask us anything!


Peer Support Volunteers (or PSV as they're often called) are very skilled, trained people that are tasked with looking after our more vulnerable members. The role of a member of the PSV is to respond to any posts that contain current suicidal and/or self-harm related thoughts and to get in contact with the person who's posted it, they make sure people know they've been heard and signpost them to amazing services that can help such as Nightline, Samaritans and Childline.

Deyesy, a member of the PSV has volunteered to take any questions you might have about the role!

For more information about the Peer Support Volunteers and how to join, see here.

Disclaimer: We want everyone to be able to take part in this, but we cannot answer sensitive questions regarding moderation or members of the community specifically. The Community Team would be happy to discuss moderation with you in Ask the Community Team (AtCT). You can, however, ask about what we would do in certain situations, etc.! Please don't ask any mean questions either.

Bio
I'm Deyesy (my actual name is Chris) and I'm part of the Peer Support Volunteer (PSV) team along with *Interrobang*, BurstingBubbles, moonkatt, randdom and shadowdweller. Our role is to respond to any posts which contain present suicidal and/or self-harm thoughts and get in get contact with the person who's posted it.

We let them know that someone has heard what they're saying and that someone has seen that they're going through a difficult time. We signpost to them to places such The Samaritans, Nightline or Childline who have volunteers trained to deal with this type of content and explain to them the reasons behind their post being edited or in incredibly rare circumstances, why their post has been removed.

We do this on top of supporting our own sections (in my instance; mental health) and it's a really rewarding role.

I'm really sorry to hear you're struggling so much with this! :hugs:

Is there anyone you could talk to about it, such as friends, family, or teachers? It may be that they're able to offer you some support in these uncertain times.
