Staying long-term with a supportive community By Anonymous I've been a member of TeenHelp for 18 years now, and a volunteer in various capacities for much of that time. TeenHelp has a superpower that keeps it relevant and important even 20 years later and that's its volunteers and community. Being a part of TeenHelp for so long has done a lot to shape who I am and where I'm at now in my life. TeenHelp was there for me when I needed support and a community the most, and has played a...

A user of TeenHelp — whose name will remain anonymous — has willingly allowed us to interview them and discuss their experiences as a triple sexual assault victim, and...

How volunteering helped me I have been disabled since I was 17 years old and I've recently decided to go back to work. Due to being disabled from such a young age I don't have a lot of paid work experience. This caused a lot of anxiety about looking for work and even more anxiety when I started questioning if I would be prepared when I got a job. One of the biggest fears I had was that I wouldn't get any call backs because I had no experience. However, I chose to list my...

An experience of self-harm By Jessie (Palmolive) Living with self-harm can be hard and that's something that I can personally relate to. However, we can learn ways to manage self-harm and to manage the feelings beneath the self-harm itself. Hope will keep you alive, as long as you keep hope alive. When I was nine, I started self-harming. Honestly, I don't know what the first thought in my head to do it was but I remember it well and it’s scary to think I'm now twenty-two and I ...

My experience with Bipolar 2 Disorder By Jenna (~Abibliophobe~) Bipolar is a disorder that can be really difficult to have because a lot of people don't understand that there are different types of Bipolar. When you tell most people that you have Bipolar they automatically counter that by saying, “I have never seen you manic.” While mania is something that all people with Bipolar have, the intensity of mania varies according to the type of Bipolar people have. With Bipolar 2, the mania is...
