    Hi @matt49 :smile: Welcome to The Mix and thanks for your post. It's important to remember that The Mix is a community focused on under 25s, as such, the community's life experience and knowledge of support is specialised to under 25s. This means it will be quite tricky for you to recieve adequate support here, or to have conversations about situations specific to your age group. Moderators and staff also won't have much knowledge of practicial information or resources to give you.

    It might help to find a service specifically designed for adults. The Mix recommends Side by Side as a good starting point. It's a mental health support community run by Mind for over 18's. Here's a link to Side by Side! :smile:

    Hey @matt49

    This is a place for young people. Have you heard about elefriends?
    “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
