    Hi @ankel2306 and welcome to the community, how are you? 

    Great to hear you're starting college soon, what will you be studying? 

    As mentioned above, we have many users with CP and a category dedicated to the subject, which I have moved your discussion in to. We also have a specialist information officer who is the lovely @Richard_Scope

    Hello and welcome to the community @ankel2306 :) 

    I think that the CP cafe mentioned above is only for those aged 20 and over, unfortunately. You're absolutely more than welcome to post on here and get some advice and support though! I don't know if you've ever heard of CP Teens UK, but it could be worth getting in touch with them as well. 

    Do you have any specific concerns about starting college?
