    Reminder of Board Rules: Self-harm and thoughts or threats thereof

    This is a difficult topic to raise, but because of recent events we’d like to take a moment to remind everyone that we have board rules against posting things like suicide notes, self-harm or threatening other members. Posts or comments of this kind will be removed.

    These posts are harmful to other members who are left in the position of not being able to help you in such a situation. We are not qualified or ready to provide anyone with mental health care. What if members say the wrong thing? It's not fair to other members to put that on their shoulders. In addition, seeing others post about committing suicide or hurting themselves can lead others who are having suicidal or self-harming thoughts to act on them.

    The Buffy-Boards is an entertainment board, so please everyone, if you are in need of help or battling depression and/or worse, please remember that you need to seek help in the real world, we are not trained therapists and cannot provide you with the help you need.

    It is because we care about all of you that we have these rules, remember that we are more or less strangers on the internet and for your own well-being as well as the well-being of other members, we urge you to speak a therapist, counsellor, support helpline, or trusted adult. You can find many helplines listed here.

    We apologise to anyone who was caused distress by recent images and talk of self-harm and once more urge anyone in pain to seek qualified help.

    Thank you
