I believe most of you have not heard from the TTL Team or spoken to us. You might not know who we are and why we are here, so I thought I'd let you know a bit about it.
What is TTL?
TakeThisLife was created in 2006 by the Administrator as a non-for-profit support forum for people struggling with depression. Over the years, the forum has grown into a great supportive community. We are constantly trying to improve TTL so that it will continue to grow and help even more people in the future.
Who are the TTL Team?
The TTL Team consists of administrators and moderators whose job it is to maintain the site. We are volunteers, and we use our spare time to take care of the community. You can find a list of all the administrators and moderators here
We work as a team and make decisions together, so if you ask one moderator a question, don't be surprised if another moderator answers you. We share all communication we have with members with the rest of the team, so that they can reply to members if we are not able to. All information you share with us will be treated confidentially, and we only discuss matters with members in private. We also do not give out information about members to third parties.
The TTL Team are not medical professionals, and we do not offer personal support in members' support threads. We are lucky to have a lot of caring members here who offer support to each other.
What we do
Some of our tasks include:
- maintain the forum software
- edit the forum layout
- help members if they have problems with their accounts or on the forum
- answer questions from members
- protect the community from spammers and trolls
- make sure that members follow the guidelines
so that everyone can feel safe and supported here
How to contact us
While we manage the site, TTL is not here for us, it is here for you. If you have suggestions on how to make our community a better place, or if you have other comments, please do not hesitate to talk to us about it. We are here to help members, and we will try our best to assist you. If you have general suggestions you can post in the Suggestions
forum. If you have private concerns you can post in the Contact Moderators
forum. The Contact Moderators forum is confidential, and any threads you create there will be visible only to yourself and members of the TTL Team.
Thank you for being supportive
Browsing the forums and reading what you all write often makes me smile. Not because I see that you struggle, but because I see so much love here. I am amazed at how caring and helpful you all are towards each other. It makes me proud to be part of this community, and it motivates me to continue to do my job. TTL would not be what it is without members such as all of you.
Thank you all for being here.
