    Hey there!

    Welcome to the mix. The group chats are currently on a week long break. Those sessions resume Monday I believe. Keep an eye out for the chat announcements :) 

    You're welcome to post on the boards and look at the other forms of support in the mean time.https://www.themix.org.uk/get-support/speak-to-our-team

    We're all here to support, if you want to share more about your anxiety and depression :)

    Heyyyy @airfryer it’s lovely to have you on here. My name is Elle, I’m 18 and I also struggle with anxiety and depression, always here if you need to chat about anything <3 

    When the group chats come back on monday, the quickest way to get into them is to type “bit.ly/GroupChatDirect” into your browser, that puts you straight in. I will probably be around in the general chats then and it would be great to see you there :)

    Hey, welcome to the mix!

    Group chats aren't on at the mo, they take a break twice yearly to give the volunteers and users a break and to take in any feedback about chat too, I think it starts again Monday!

    Sounds like things are tough right now, sending hugs your way :heart:

    Also a big fan of your profile pic!
    thank you aidan!! hope to see you at the group chat :))) yes they are, here is a hug back <3 ahahahah thank you!!!

    Welcome!

     Have you managed to join the group chats yet? 
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    Hey @bhavz, it’d be lovely to see you in group chat! So, for some reason you need a separate account for the boards and for chat, so make sure you aren’t logging in with your boards details :) 

    The quickest way to get into the chat is to type “bit.ly/GroupChatDirect” into your browser, that will take you straight to the chat room and from there you can sign up. You can also go into chat as a guest if it still won’t let you sign up.
