Suicide Helplines. Threatening suicide or even talking of suicide ideation, self harm or self medication in chat is not permitted because it is triggering to other members who, like you, are fragile and trying to recover.
These rules are in place to protect all members. DF's primary mission is support. We work to provide a safe haven for people managing mental illness. Your adherence to these rules ensures that chat, like the rest of DF, is that safe haven. Thank you for your cooperation.
