    Well I was having trouble on The Challenge, and I didn't have anyone to speak to so one of the high up people of NCS sent me a link to TheSite and I joined :)

    A friend of mine linked me to it. I was 15 and I think we (or rather, I) were having some issues. He suggested that maybe I should TS and ask for advice. He did originally introduce me to another website; but said here was maybe more age appropriate.

    I was wading through Google trying to find somewhere to get advice from real people. I found TS chat and ended up sticking around on the boards. :)

    If I remember rightly, I was on google searching for info/advice on a particular subject and came across TheSite :)

    I was looking for mental health support forums that I could be of help with, and came across this site on Google! :)

    I joined to support someone who has since left, but decided to stay because I needed advice and support and wanted to help others. Doing that, it helped me. :)

    It's great to see the range of ways people found out about the site! I personally found out through work, because it's always cool to get involved with new communities! :)

    Too long ago to remember - though I know it was discussion on the drugs board that attracted me. The drugs forum used to be really lively with a good bunch of people.

    Even if you're little you can do a lot. You musn't let a little thing like little stop you. If you sit around and let them get on top you might as well be saying you think that it's okay, and that's not right. And if it's not right you have to put it right.

    This is an old thread, buy you guys said you wanted it resurrecting ;)

    I tried to join another website to talk about my dip into appalling mental health, and got redirected here, can't even remember the other site 😂

    On a poster at our local youth group.

    i was already heavily based around childine and kooth and a few anxiety forums and i just wanted to help more, but i also discovered some support and most importantly group chats so it became one of my most used ones :) x
