odd creature with long legs and strange eyes…
what the fuck is that
starting to worry that i may never find my pokemon x…
a social community where teenagers with mental illness can connect; a place for mental health…
hi so i just created a tumblr for teenagers & young adults with mental illnesses/disorders to congregate, meet people struggling with similar things, have a kind of support network, find resources for mental health, and to just socialize with kool kids on the hip net. i think it would be really beneficial for kids to have a safe place to go to especially if they aren’t receiving support in real life and it would be a positive atmosphere, of course, but not one that minimizes the reality of mental illness with hopey-changey-platitudes and whatever. it won’t all be depressing; the point is a positive environment and a lot of it should be about making friends you can connect with.
i’m really hoping i can get this off the ground and form a community. if you are interested in joining, please reblog this and go on ghostsonline.tumblr.com/join. if not, i’d really appreciate it if you could reblog it anyway so it can reach people who need something like this.
-no triggering imagery like blood
-absolutely no glorification of mental illness, suicide, and self-harm
-no nsfw content
-no generic “it gets better” messages, because those really don’t help. offer specific guidance and genuine sympathy, not a hallmark card message, man
-be tolerant and kind to everyone. the whole point is to have a safe, friendly, helpful community.
additionally, a skype group for members is definitely a possibility, so if you’re comfortable with that, we can get one going for u to join
thank you for reading this & have a swell day, friend
