    Hi, just wanted to drop in and say hi. I am a passionate mental health advocate and over the years have raised over $35,000 for Beyond Blue. I one day hope I can be an ambassador as someone with lived experience. I am still on the road to healing and look forward to participating in these forums. I just need to get my head around everything and how it all works!

    Take care

    Hi, welcome

    Well you came to the right place lol.

    There is a few ways to post here, first to continue on posting in this thread you've started outlining your issues and asking questions, commencing a new thread and leave this one as your introduction thread, or simply answering others posts using the knowledge you have gained over the years.

    We have a great group of Community Champions (I'm one) that have been selected that have priorities to answer members if they think they can assist with the members specific issues/illnesses.

    But we shouldnt underestimate the knowledge of our membership here, we are constantly astounded with how much assistance they give to others, such a caring group of people here.

    All the best Dancing in the storm.

    Hello DancingInTheStorm, and a warm welcome to the site.

    Raising that amount of money for BB has been a magnificent effort and I'm sure you had been thanked by BB for achieving this amount, it's sad we don't hear about people like you who have diligently worked to be able to raise money for this terrific cause, well done.

    Trying to sort out why you or anyone else suffers from this insidious illness is never easy as there are unforeseen hurdles we're not sure how to overcome, but with help, it slowly opens a new door to help guide us in the right direction.

    Your participation in contributing on the forums will always be a positive benefit for many people as well as for yourself, so we hope to hear back from you.

    Best wishes.

    Geoff.
