Exclamation No where else to go. - January 6th 2020, 03:55 PM

Haven't been on here in a long time. (Not really a teen anymore.) I'm not sure where else to go. Having a hard time with anxiety, depression, insomnia, and paranoia. Any ideas on any other self help sites/groups geared towards adults? I've been searching but haven't really found anything. Thanks in advance.

Sadly, there is none. I'm not saying this because it's against the code of conduct to name competitor sites; regardless of target age demographics. I'm saying this because I am 35 and am way too old to be on a site geared towards teenagers; and I have searched but have come up with absolutely nothing. There is one site, that would be easy to search on Google; but I would not recommend it for anyone. While TeenHelp disclaims any medical knowledge — "we are not medical professionals" — this site has no such disclaimer.

However, this is not to say there aren't adults in their 20s (and three in their 30s, excluding Rob) who are not equally as qualified to give support and advice. Age is just a number; it's the experience you have that define your skill and ability to give appropriate support. There are a few members on here that have experienced things that I haven't, and they are younger than me. Does this make them less qualified in those subject area because they're younger and I'm older?

Nope!

So don't hesitate in reaching out for support and advice. If you want to talk privately, feel free to PM me.

Hi!
Age is just a number! I’m sure you’re welcome in here.
If you ever need anything or to talk, just send me a PM

Hey there,

As it's been said, we can't really name other sites as it goes against TeenHelp's Code of Conduct. That said, you can always check out our resources and hotlines for some ideas.

Also, as it's been said, despite the name, we cater for all ages, and have a variety of older and younger staff members with different life experiences. You are free to use the forums, post as a guest, or use HelpLINK or Live Help if you want more anonymity.

Hope this helps a bit and you can get the support you are looking for
