Support Circle (Tuesday 6th October)

JustVJustV Community Manager Posts: 4,981 The Mix Elder
Evening everyone! Another week, another Support Circle announcement. :bleep_bloop:

The next support circle will be on Tuesday 6th October, at the usual time of 7:55-9:30pm.

What is Support Circle?

Support Circle follows the same basic structure as a Support Chat - opening round, support time, and closing round. The unique thing about Support Circle is that everyone gets their own time to chat and be heard by the group, and have their chance to listen and support others. It's sign-up based so the group is relatively small, and you can sign-up to get support or to support others.

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 people who want to come and get support or attend as listeners

Try your best to stay for the whole session if you sign up to come. That just makes sure nobody feels left out at the end when other people have left and it's their turn to share.

Similarly, it's important to stick to Support Circle if you do sign up and not go into other rooms, just so you're nice and present in the group and ready to support the other folks in the session.

Both of these things help make sure everyone feels equally listened to in the group. :)

You can sign-up using this form, and give us any feedback you have here.
All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    This is a message for Ns, who signed up for this session:
    It looks like you don't have an account on the discussion boards under that name. If you could drop us a PM @The Mix or send us an email at [email protected] so we know who you are, that would be brill. We may not be able to offer you a place this time if someone else signs up, but we can save you a space for the next one if you like. :)
