📢 Support Circle Group Chat - Tuesday 7 September, 7:55-9:30pm

TheMixTheMix Posts: 3,050 Boards Guru
Hello everyone,

Our next Support Circle group chat will be on Tuesday 7 September from 7:55 pm - 9:30 pm.

Whether you want to come to support others or to get support yourself, you can sign-up using this form.

What is Support Circle?
Support Circle is a group chat of no more than 5 people, where everyone takes it in turns to get support while the rest of the group listens. We run Support Circles every Tuesday, from 7:55-9:30pm.

The room is password-protected, facilitated by a moderator. Anyone is welcome to sign up to get support or you are also welcome to sign up to be a listener to help 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.

If you sign up, we'll be in touch within a few days to confirm your place. :)
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.

    Tbh most of the people who go to circle are over 16, if not 18 but it’s not just for one age group anyone is welcome to go along.
