Support Circle (Tuesday 07/08/2018)

TheMixTheMix Posts: 3,055 Boards Guru
Hey everyone,

This week, we have Support Circle running on Tuesday 7th August from 7.55-9:30pm. Elena will be modding.

What is Support Circle?

For anyone who doesn't know, a support circle chat follows the same basic structure as a standard support chat session - opening round, support time, and closing round. Everyone that signs up will have their own time to chat and be heard by the group, and have their chance to listen and support others.

Why go to Support Circle?

It's a great space for people who find it difficult to get their voices heard in regular support chat and/or are keen to listen and support others in a more structured environment. We have places for both people who want to come and get support or be listeners and support others. 

Places are limited, so sign up using our shiny new form and we will contact you via private message to confirm your place. 

- Aife & Mike
We're @Aife, @Ella, @Gemma, and @JustV - the staff team here at The Mix.

Our DMs are monitored Monday - Friday (10am - 5pm) with limited cover on weekends. We have a great team of moderators looking after the community outside of those hours to check in on any reported posts.

We're not able to provide support on this account. If you need support urgently for any reason, please call 999, go to your nearest A&E or contact Crisis Messenger by texting THEMIX to 85258.

    I am so stupid. I forgot that it is Thursday- not Tuesday. Still begins with a T.

    Hey everyone,

    We have 3 more spaces left for support circle tonight, there's still time to sign up if you'd like a place :) 

    Also if Scarlett sees this, we can't seem to find a boards account for you. Can you send us a private message or comment below with your boards name. We'll then be in touch with the password for the room.

    Only 2 people went. 1 other person came after getting the password off a mod. Chat ended early.

    Hey @Kasa2103

    Sorry to hear support circle ended early. There will be times when it will finish early if there is a smaller group. Remember support chat is there if you want to get any support about anything else. Hope you managed to get some support last night :)
