1-2-1 Chat on the Mix

ArianaAriana Posts: 193 Trailblazer
Hi everyone, I'm new here, and was just wondering if anyone has tried the Mix's 1-2-1 Chat feature? If so, did you find it helpful and what was it like? Wondering about trying it, but feeling a bit scared to and not really sure what it involves....

    Hey Ariana, 

    Welcome to The Mix

    I personally haven't used the 1-1 chat service on here, but we are super friendly and supportive and a great community so I am sure if you do try the service you'll find it helpful, :heart:

    I think the aim with the 1-1 chat service is to explore your situation and signpost to other organisations which may benefit from you,

    Hope this has helped, try not to worry to much. :heart:

    We're a lovely bunch, it's a great community. I've been a part of this community for about 7 years now, I don't seek support, I just support others :heart:

    That's great you've been here so long @*BananaMonkey* and that you like supporting others. Just so long as you remember to take good care of yourself too! This does seem like a very friendly place.

    Hey @Ariana, and welcome to the community. :) Always good to get some first hand experiences and opinions of these things.

    Just to add some info about the service itself: it's a little different to the way the community functions. Where the boards and group chat are designed for long-term use, our 1-2-1 service is more geared towards finding support options for you to then go on and contact. You could think of the 1-2-1 service a bit like a hospital triage - they'll listen to what's on your mind, then find the best place for you to get support based on what you've shared with them.

    Hope that helps, and best of luck if you do give it a go. :)

    Thank you @The Mix for explaining what the different things are for, that's really helpful. I haven't worked out how to join a group chat yet but I quite like the sound of that. Think that's maybe more what I'm looking for. Would just really like to feel less alone with everything.
