Help us improve the Sex and Relationships description

Hi everyone,

We ran a co-design a few months ago for a project called Your Best Friend. The aim of the project is to help empower young people with the knowledge and confidence to spot abuse in relationships and support their friends.

From the co-design we ran a few months ago, we heard from young people that they wouldn't know that they could post in the Sex & Relationships section of the discussion boards to get support for their friends. The current description sounds like it's just for those struggling, rather than being a space where both those struggling and their friends can get support.

We want to hear from you about how would we can change the description we have for the Sex & Relationships section of the boards to help friends know this is also a space they can reach out for support.

Here's a copy of the current description, feel free to share any ideas you have in the comments below:

Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    This is a very interesting post. I think the current definition is okay but yes adding a bit about 'reach out for help with friends, family, lovers' may help a bit

    Great idea @La_La. All ideas are welcomed and appreciated! We need to make sure it is the best it can be.

    I nearly put it as a difficult morning challenge when I responded. It turns out it was the afternoon and I probably need a strong coffee! So anyone who has any ideas, please share =)

    Thank you very much for sharing your ideas @Laura_tigger82 and @La_La. These really are excellent and highlight well that someone can get support for their friends. I really liked the way you phrased your idea @La_La, and I've made that change to the description today :)
