Supporting each other in conquering depression, anxiety, trauma, doubt, and apathy. This is a positive community dedicated to overcoming our challenges.

We kindly request that posts in this subreddit include an element of introspection, such as steps to counteract negative thinking. Although we understand that setbacks do happen and should be acknowledged, this is the place to discuss how you are actively working to improve your mental health.

  1. Self-posts only. Feel free to link to articles or media in a text submission that explains your reasoning for sharing the content. We request that all external links (e.g. videos, articles or blogs) should be focused on improving or reflecting on our mental health. Any links that are not directly related may be removed at the moderators' discretion.

  2. Posts that are disrespectful, abusive, dismissive, trolling or discriminatory will be removed and the user may be banned. If you see any such posts, please report them. Also note that the moderators may tag or remove posts containing triggering content at their discretion.

  3. Posts about surveys, products and/or services(including chatrooms!) require mod approval. Send a modmail to ask us, but keep in mind that it is a request. Should we find that we have to many posts recently, we may not not allow the post in order to prevent stacking up those kind of posts. For surveys, we require IRB approval.

If your post or comment is not showing up, it may be stuck in the spam filter or it may have been removed for violating one of our rules. Please message us if you have any questions.

While we do our best to support each other, we are not a crisis service. If you or someone you know is in danger of hurting themselves or others, or if you are in crisis, visit Befrienders Worldwide to find a helpline in your country.
