Straightjackets Optional provides peer support, much like a real life support group. It is not a replacement for any health care provider as we are not trained counsellors. Always talk to your doctor/therapist/psychologist/psychiatrist if you have concerns about your health.

This support forum is for ISSUE SPECIFIC support. No venting, or ranting about other members. No complaining about what happens in another forum. No name calling or bashing.
