Welcome to the Beyond Blue forum Jay25,
We are very grateful to have you join us today and be so open in sharing your thoughts and experiences. We're so sorry to hear that you feel your life has been filled by shame and suffering. We can hear that you have been through many difficulties that are causing you a lot of pain. We hope you know that these feelings of sadness will eventually pass and life can get better. It sounds like you have a lot to offer people and we're sure that a lot of our community members will relate to these feelings and hopefully, some of them will be able to offer you words of advice.
If you feel it may be helpful, you are always welcome to get in touch with Kids Help Line. They are a confidential and anonymous, telephone and online counselling service specifically for young people aged 25 and under.
We’d also welcome you to reach out to our Support Service, which is available 24/7 by phone on 1300 22 4636 or on Webchat 3pm-12am AEST on our website: www.beyondblue.org.au/getsupport.
We would also recommend getting in touch with an organisation called Headspace. Headspace is an organisation specifically for young people aged 12-25 and they offer a wide range of services including group programs which are a great opportunity to meet people. They also have a group chat on their webpage.
Please feel free to reach out here on your thread and keep us updated on what you're feeling and experiencing whenever you feel up to it.
