help and support for those suffering from bipolar disorder
|Name:||A safe space for those with bipolar disorder|
1. This is the most important one, so please be sure you understand it completely. This asylum is a safe space for those who suffer from bipolar disorder. That means I have zero tolerance for flaming, judging, rudeness or any other type of flat out asshattery towards any of the members. If at any point someone feels they’re being attacked or that the safe space rule is being broken, please don’t respond to it. Instead, contact me via email or PM and I’ll address the situation offline and away from the asylum.
2. Understand that everyone suffers from bipolar disorder in different ways and with different triggers. Accept that. This is a place for support, not judgment. On the topic of triggers, please place anything potentially triggering behind a clear cut-tag with basic information on what the trigger is. If you post something that isn’t cut and I feel it should be cut, you’ll be asked to edit your entry and add the cut. If you don't in a timely member, I'll delete the post and repost it with a cut. Please don't be offended if this happens, I just want to ensure everyone is comfortable with what's being posted and feels safe.
3. Understand that knowledge is power. Educate yourself. There are many great resources available online. NAMI (http://www.nami.org) is a great place to learn about bipolar disorder or any other mental illness and also provides up-to-date information on treatments and research being done.
4. Support one another. That’s what we’re really here for. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and don’t be afraid to offer help if you can.
This asylum is affiliated with depression and ocd. If you moderate a community geared towards mental illness and would like to become an affiliate, feel free to email or PM me.
