My name is April and I have been suffering from depression for a while now. Just trying to be positive and avoid my usual coping methods.

    Welcome to the boards, I notice you're in the US? It's worth noting that this website is aimed at UK young adults, aged 16-25. We have many people that don't fit in these categories, but it's worth remembering that the vast majority of advice pages/information we can provide, will relate to the UK.

    Yes I am. Thanks for the information! I have realized that (a little while after registering. I really need to read more), to be honest. Really, I guess I just kept going with it in the hopes to just talk.

    You're more than welcome to be a member, people will still support you as much as they can but just remember we wont know much about help services in America or charities that could support you further.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I appreciate that. :) And I understand. Sadly from the research I had done, seems America doesn't have sites like these, which is what I was looking for. I feel that it would be ideal for me to talk to people who may be going through similar things as myself, and help each other if at all possible.

    There's lots of help and support here. Might be worth making a thread in Health and Wellbeing explaining your situation so we can other some advice.

    Hi TiggerTears, welcome!

    Btoken-Angel's totally right - you're more than welcome, but just bear in mind that some of the services and organisations we talk about might not apply to the USA.

    I noticed you've been getting stuck in already, which is great! But if you ever get a bit stuck or just want more info, try our 'Start here' thread, which should give you a good idea of what goes on around these parts :)
    Feel free to post any questions about TheSite in the 'Help Desk' and someone will drop in to help you out.

    I'm JPick by the way - one of the mods you'll see floating around. Nice to meet you!
