    Welcome to the community @sammy28 :) It's great to have you with us.

    Just to let you know, I've removed your surname from your post. We don't allow personal details, such as full names, to be posted on the community. This is for the safety of yourself and others. You can read our other house rules here

    I'm sorry to hear that you experience depression and anxiety. Are you able to manage those conditions okay? Do you receive any support for your mental health?

    You're more than welcome to take a look around and get stuck in with any discussions that catch your eye. You might be particularly interested in checking out our mental health and wellbeing category if you want to discuss issues relating to mental health, or our coffee lounge category if you just fancy a general natter. 

    Give us a shout if you need anything!

    National Campaigns Officer at Scope, she/her
