    I'm a 15 year old boy currently trying (sometimes unsuccessfully) to get through high school. I heard about BeyondBlue in many places and figured it wouldn't be too bad of an idea to try it out. I'm mostly just here to browse, but I might end up talking about myself or maybe making some friends. I don't know.

    I don't have many hobbies but I do enjoy videogames and TV (like most sane people). I also like reading and being with my pets.

    Thanks for reading

    Hello Ocean_man, can we welcome you to the site. and pleased you have joined, because MI (mental illness) can affect different people in so many ways, but when you or any of us suffer from any type of depression it can certainly affect our lives with school, work, socially and being able to connect with a person who understands what we are struggling with, where no criticism applies.

    Are you able to tell us what sort of pet you have, a puppy or kitten, I love both but my preference is for dogs.

    Hope to hear back from you.
