Thank you for being a part of TalkMH, we're extremely grateful to have you as a part of our community and ask that you familiarize yourself with the below ruleset. We don't make a habit of enforcing a strict ruleset here at TalkMH, but there are a couple of rules that are important to note and adhere to, given the nature of our little community.
TalkMH Community Ruleset
- First and foremost -- Respect is paramount here on TalkMH. People are here because they have or want to learn about particularly severe mental health issues. We ask that you respect each and every member of this forum and do not mock, deride, insult or otherwise antagonize other members during your time here. This is a community of empathy, inclusiveness, support and understanding.
- Second it is important to note, as is mentioned several times on various portions of the website, that TalkMH is NOT a legitimate replacement for actual mental health counselling nor proper medical care. If you are struggling and you need help, please contact professional help options. We love you, we care about you, but we are not trained professionals, please seek help if you are desperate.
We have a forum games section and we openly welcome your participation there, but please do not join to post links to other websites, copy / pasted responses to questions or other generic spam type content. Do not try and sell things to our members.
No trolling / flaming / abuse. Do not troll, abuse or flame any member of Talk Mental Health.
Confidentiality and Privacy
Confidentiality and Privacy are a high priority at Talk Mental Health. Anybody found to be compromising any other members right to confidentiality or privacy will be permanently banned. We reserve the right to share confidential information with the authorities if requested or required to by law.
Trigger / Content Warnings
Please provide trigger warnings or content warnings for content that could be sensitive in nature. Any content that could be distressing to others should come with an appropriate content warning.
Please respect each others boundaries. If a user says stop, or no, then that is the end of the conversation.
Diversity and Inclusion
Here at Talk Mental Health, we believe that everyone's voice matters. We want everyone to feel included and respected, no matter who they are. Let's all be mindful of how we talk and act, so we can make sure everyone feels welcome and valued. When we celebrate our differences, we make our community stronger and more supportive for everyone dealing with mental health challenges.
Taking Care of Yourself
It's important to look after your own mental health while you're here. Remember to take breaks if you need them, and don't be afraid to ask for help if you're struggling. It's okay to take care of yourself first!
