I was an alcoholic for many years. I drank to numb the pain, because I didn’t know any other way to cope with the mental pain I was experiencing. But God is good, and I was able to stop drinking, and I am now 17 years sober. I knew something was not quite right, but I didn’t know what it was. It turned out, I have Male Borderline Personality Disorder, ADHD, and High Functioning Autism. I am now in recovery, I practice my DBT skills daily. I do still have those ‘moments’ where I get triggered and just lose my cool, but those moments are becoming father and farther apart. I’m open to talk about anything. I’m not an expert, but I can share you things that work for me. Don’t hesitate to connect with me. Just leave me a message and I will reply you as soon as I can. This is my favorite proverb, “No matter how far you’ve gone down the wrong road, turn back. “

Sono una laureanda in Psicologia Clinica, con una laurea in Scienze e Tecniche Psicologiche. Nei momenti più difficili della mia vita, quelli durante i quali credi che nessuno possa capirti, ho avuto l'Arte come compagna delle mie notti insonni. Grazie all'arte sono poi riuscita a trovare le parole per spiegare e ad accorgermi che in realtà c'erano tante persone pronte ad ascoltare. C'è sempre qualcosa o qualcuno in grado di tirarti in salvo, l'importante è tendere la mano per poter trovare quella dell'altro.

I’m Alicia and I’m 18 from the Uk. I have struggled with anxiety when I’m high school (not diagnosed) and I have been a self harmer for my teenage years. I’m taking a gap year before studying a mental health course at uni and I thought this would be great for me!! In the past year, I have raised money for various mental health charities! I have a real passion for mental health and I truly believe nobody should ever go through things on their own with nobody to confide in. So I would love to be that person that could hopefully make somebody’s day a little bit better and just help to make a difference!??????
I am 55. Married. Female. Mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother(via step-children). I am a survivor of childhood physical, emotional and sexual abuse as well as some neglect. I became a nurse after many years of dreaming of doing just that. I retired many years ago and I'm no longer licensed or qualified to offer any sort of official advice. That's what I hope you have doctors to assist you with. I find that reaching out and talking about my issues has helped me over the years. I hope to provide an accepting and supportive ear now. Feel free to reach out to me to discuss most anything. I can, and have been known to, say "no" if I feel a question goes too far.
Hi, I am Zoe and I am a psychology student. I love helping others and used to volunteer at a crisis support phone line I found it really rewarding but also demanding and want to help other in the best way I can when I am available. I also work with kids with disabilities and help support them achieve their goals. :)
Hello, my name is Emanuel. I’m currently working as a ABA therapist for kids with autism and studying a Bachelor of Psychology. The reason I volunteer on this site is because i know how important connection is when you’re going through bad times. My parents have suffered from various mental illnesses, and as a kid i suffered from anxiety and depression. Despite getting through them, i felt very alone during these periods so if i could just help one person on this platform i would consider my job done. On a much lighter note, i’m a massive fan of travelling, checking out nature, and watching drama-filled TV shows and movies. If you would like to connect with me, please send me a message, would love to hear from you.
I have been volunteering at an NGO for the last year, providing face to face, zoom and telephone counselling. I have been lucky enough to facilitate personal growth courses as well as train participants in lay counselling skills. I am busy completing my honours degree in Psychology and hope one day to become a clinical psychologist. I have had many challenges in my life starting with the loss of family support when my parents had to escape my home country under political asylum, having my first born at a very young age, starting and growing a family business and finally navigating the experiences of marrying young and raising my 2 children into their teen years. I have found my space in mental health and spend much of my free time learning all there is to know about it. When I am not doing that, I love to read and have started playing golf.
