Regarding suicide references & off-topic posts in the Depression Forum
The Depression Forum is for depression-related topics only. It is not for the discussion of suicide. If you would like to talk about suicide, please do so in the Suicide Forum. This is to protect potentially fragile members who may be trying to avoid being triggered by suicide related topics and do not expect to find them in the Depression Forum.
Also, please do not use the Depression Forum to discuss non-depression related topics. We have many forums dedicated to the discussion of specific subject matter, and non-depression related topics will be moved to the appropriate forum. Please help us keep the community organized by starting your thread in the most appropriate forum.
By using the appropriate forums to share experiences and give and receive advice, members who have similar experiences or are facing the same challenges can easily find your messages and participate, while members who are triggered by such topics can avoid them.
Thank you for understanding. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us by making a new thread in Contact Moderators.
The TTL Team
I need a place where I can chat about what I am going through. It is so impersonal or frustrating to just post in a forum and not speak one on one in a chat room.
Posting about your struggles is the best option. The Lighter Side and personal messages are reserved for light-hearted chat only. This is partly to keep members from feeling solely responsible for another's well-being. If you post, everyone can offer support. Sometimes you will find that people respond right away to your posts. If not, and it is an emergency, please call a hotline or someone for help if you need it.
If not an emergency, please do try posting, there are a lot of supportive members here. You will get to know us, and it should help the feeling that it is impersonal.
I want to remind you all of our guideline about "off topic posts":
Thank you for understanding. If you have questions or concerns, please make a new thread in the Contact Moderators forum. This forum is confidential and any threads you create there will be visible only to yourself and members of the TTL team.
