Hi, my name is Claire :)

Hello everyone!

I'm a college student studying Childcare/Early Years and wish to gain more of an insight into strategies dealing with behavioural and learning difficulties.

As well as that, I want to help people who are dealing with mental health issues as I have experienced anxiety and depression in the past (though I am still on medication) mainly due to severe bullying I received while at school as well as the hormonal effects of PCOS (Polycystic Ovaries)

But yeah feel free to chat/message me, would love to get to know you all :)

    Hi @ClaireGrace94 - Welcome to the community, & thank you for joining. I hope you're enjoying your studies, & altho' I can't offer any insight into dealing with behavioural problems & learning difficulties, others here might. If you have a look around here using the 'All groups' link on the right-hand side of this page, you will see other sections & posts you can look at & join in with if you wish.
    I'm sorry for the problems you've faced, but it's good in a way in that, because of this, you want to help those with mental health issues.
    Anyway, it's good to 'meet' you, & I'm sure some of the other lovely people here will be along for a chat too.
