The idea behind peer support is that people living with the same disorders or problems provide emotional and practical support to each other.
Message Boards - A discussion board (known also by various other names such as discussion group, discussion forum, message board, and online forum) is a general term for any online "bulletin board" where you can leave and expect to see responses to messages you have left. Or you can just read the board.
Forums differ from chat rooms and instant messaging in that forum participants do not have to be online simultaneously to receive or send messages. Messages posted to a forum are publicly available for some time, which is uncommon in chat rooms that maintain frequent activity.

I thank you for understanding the reason for rules. Anytime someone has a question for any of the mods please do email.
I think we can continue on with our wonderful forum and and continue to provide caring and support to each other.
I am touched by each of you and the posts you write. I have always promised to do no harm and I will continue to keep this your own special place to come to and feel safe.
Your input is appreciated. Have a great Sunday.
Thank you Badfish,
Well put and you are right, we are family and there will be many times we have different opinions and it is good to share opinions as long as it is always done with respect and with the purpose of suggesting advice to the member.
Each of us has our own unique personality and yes some are more vulnerable then others.
Having teens as young as 13 is the reason why we do not allow indepth descriptions of self harm, the last thing we need to do is tell someone how to hurt themselves in an open forum?
So thank you for your words of wisdom.
