It's a tough one though. The charity's mission is to help vulnerable young people, and quite a lot of vulnerable young people act up because they don't know how else to express themselves. There needs to be boundaries but blanket bans are not good either for that reason.

How do you feel people are using the warnings?

So to be clear, I don't think we disagree that trigger warnings are not always necessary. We only seem to disagree in that I think, sometimes they are appropriate, and the impression I have is that you feel they are never appropriate?

I feel that [trigger warnings] are fairly valueless at best. I don't believe that it really helps as a warning, since you cannot know the result of reading a post. A potentially *useful* thread, could, therefore, be made unavailable to people by these warnings.

That's a really interesting point. I hadn't thought of that.

Sorry to bump this but I've noticed the massive shift in giving support for mental health and H+WB is now made up of these kinds of threads. Would I be horrible to suggest we create a separate mental health sub forum in H+WB and lose the 'triggering' titles? Personally I think it can be a bit off putting to go in there looking for advice on general health to be confronted with a lot of these threads, it is a bit intimidating and I feel general health threads can get lost in there.
