    [Discussion] How has mental illness affected your family and social life?

    I live in a country where mental illness is considered a myth. When I was first diagnosed with depression and anxiety, I feared telling my family and friends because of the ridicule I would face. And I was right in doing so, because the minute word got out that I was on medication, my friends...

    [Discussion] Kids In Crisis - BBC

    I was shown this video a while ago and it’s pretty shocking. In brief, it’s explaining how lacking NHS mental health services are especially for teenagers/children, with a lot of them being denied treatment, having to wait years for it or being sent to facilities miles away from their family and...

    [Venting] Depression

    I’ve been really depressed the past couple of days. I have no energy or the interest to do anything and I’ve been trying my hardest to hide my emotions from my loved ones so they don’t start questioning if I’m safe to be alone or not. My family is the type to throw my in a psych ward at any hint...

    Disclaimer: I am not saying that ALL therapy and mental health counseling or therapists, mental health professionals, or counselors are useless. There are some people that benefit greatly from them. With that said, I am just so damn sick and tired that people who don't want to spend the time or...

    [Resource] Probably the most controversial book ever written

    Ever Deeper Honesty: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8owK7WpBz7WN1AtMDhybDJHcFE/view (free pdf, author unknown) What makes it so controversial? It shatters every delusion that humans have regarding life. Everything we've been brainwashed into holding sacred and believing in is a damn lie...

    A messy suicide

    I've spent a lot of time looking at methods and their results. The main issue with guns is just how much of your face it's going to blow off. I knew someone who attempted suicide and failed, and he was left with more or less a flap of skin for a bottom jaw. Even browsing places like goregrish or...

    Why i still haven't done it

    What I like about this forum is that I can finally write about suicide without sounding alarm bells and receiving threats of forced hospitalizations and police welfare checks. I've been through it all: hospitals, medication, treatment, self-encouragement, everything. I don't have too much time...
