Depression Forums

Welcome to the Depression Forums

The 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.

If you are unfamiliar with the concept of how forums work in general, please refer to the the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section within the forums. The FAQ section details everything from how to register, to general posting to sending private messages.

Please note:

  • To help avoid automated spamming of the forums, you are required to register before you are able to post.

  • Once you are in the forums, please use the navigation panel that appears at the top of each page to visit other sections of this website (for example the depression chat Rooms, gallery and so forth).

Etiquette Guide

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:

  • You are 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 immediately removed.

  • The forums are 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.

  • It is required that you use a single registered username whenever you login; this is to help promote trust with fellow users of the forums. Please ensure you keep a record of your username and password.

  • Advertising, or the promotion of any other similar forums or chat rooms is prohibited. Any such activity will result in an immediate ban.
