If you don't know what a group chat break is, click the spoiler below. ⤵
What is a 'group chat break'?
Roughly three times a year, we have a week or two where we take a break from running group chats.

We use these periods as a chance to gather community feedback, reflect on how things are going on the community, and look at anything we might want to work on. It's also a good chance for staff, volunteers, and you, our community, to take a breather. If you use group chat often, chat breaks are a good opportunity to try new services and expand your support network too. :)

When is the next break?
Our next break will be from Monday 17th April - Sunday 30th April. The usual group chat schedule will resume as normal on Monday 1st May.

We will keep running the new Thursday Support Circle sessions for survivors of sexual violence during this time. For information about these chats, head over to our announcement post about this new chat.

Will there be a community quiz?
Yes, we can look at arranging a quiz. Let us know in the comments if you'd like us to run one :)

Where can I go while group chat is closed?
If you'd like some support while group chat isn't running, feel free to head over to our one-to-one services. You can get in touch in three ways - phone, webchat and email. Call for free on 0808 808 4994, from 4pm-11pm. The discussion boards will also be open as normal.

If you're at breaking point, our Crisis Messenger is also open as usual. Text THEMIX to 85258. You can also head to this thread to find more crisis options if you need urgent support.

If you want somewhere like General Chat, you can always head over to general chit chat or take a look at Anything Goes and Travel & Free Time.

Questions? Drop them below :)

    @Morgan yep you are more than welcome to run a quiz round again if you've done one before. We'll post up a new thread about the quiz soon where you can sign up to write and host a round :)

    Hello, thank you for creating and moderating The Mix community. It's great to see a safe and supportive space for young people to discuss their thoughts and feelings. I appreciate the effort put into establishing Community Guidelines to ensure that the space remains respectful and secure for everyone. I hope that many young people will find solace and support in your forums and Group Chats. Keep up the good work!
