Welcome to the Depression Forums
are dedicated to depression, anxiety and other related health issues.
Whilst including health sections, the forums also include areas that allow
you to casually introduce yourself, as well as some more off-topic and
community related material.
are unfamiliar with the concept of how forums work in general, please
refer to the the
FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section within the
FAQ section details everything from how to register, to
general posting to sending private messages.

We do not wish to impose a
multitude of rules and conditions as to what is acceptable in the forums.
We believe to do so would hamper communication and expression, often at
times when it is crucial to convey feelings clearly and precisely. In
order for us to maintain this stance we ask that you are conscious of
others feelings at all times, and show appropriate respect. To summarise,
we ask you to treat others as you would like to be treated yourself.
In order to avoid any confusion
as to what is acceptable in the forums we have compiled the following
simple forums etiquette guide:
expected to show
consideration, understanding and respect to others at all times.
We do not
tolerate the use of strong profanities, or posts of a sexually explicit
nature. Such content can often be disturbing to others and will be
intended to help support those with depression and other related
health issues. The glorification of suicidal thoughts or tendencies,
and/or the glorification of self injury (either by written text or the
entry of links to other websites), will not be tolerated and your post
will be deleted.
