    I am new member here but keen to be involved in helping out. I am a 'mature age' person with lots of 'life skills' and experiences. While I have some tertiary training in mental health (Counselling), I want to put that to one side and respond at a grassroots level.

    Dear Chris~

    I'm pleased to welcome you here to the Support Forum and hope you find satisfaction in helping others and of course hope you find facts and techniques that are of assistance to you personally too.

    Having lived a long life with plenty of 'life experience' as you put it you will not doubt have been deeply affected by parts of it and how you coped could be of benefit to others and allow you understanding.

    Best wishes

    Croix

    Hello ChrisCou, welcome to the site.

    I'm sure you have many life experiences and life skills which we hope you are able to utilise on any thread you can relate to, and it's always terrific to have new people join us on the forum with different journies they have had to encounter.

    Replying at a grassroots level is a great way to begin and look forward to seeing you around.

    Best wishes.

    Geoff.
