Facilitated Chat Room Discussions. - August 30th 2009, 07:43 PM

Every week the Chat Room will now be hosting group discussions facilitated (guided) by one or more members of the TeenHelp Staff. These discussions allow you to get together with a group of people who have had similar experiences to you, share your experiences and advise one another. The role of the facilitator is to keep the discussions healthy and encourage everybody to participate, as well as to share their own thoughts with you. Each discussion will take place twice so that those in different timezones are still able to participate. Each week these sessions will be advertised through notices on the site, or you can find out what each week's session will be here: http://www.teenhelp.org/chat/discussions/ (also found under the Chat Room menu).

We currently have four sessions planned, and they are as follows:

Saturday 5th September 2009 – Sex and Relationships
8pm-9pm BST (UK) [7pm UTC] – Facilitated by Adam
8pm-9pm CDT (USA) [1am UTC, 6th] – Facilitated by lost-myself

Saturday 12th September 2009 – Depression and Suicide
8pm-9pm BST (UK) [7pm UTC] – Facilitated by Lizzie
8pm-9pm CDT (USA) [1am UTC, 13th] – Facilitated by Jessie

* BST is British Summer Time.
* CDT is Central Daylight Time.

I loved this idea when it was suggested.
Where will it be? Will a new room be made for it?

Yes, a new temporary room will be created for each discussion.

I love this idea! I wish I could join the chat...I still haven't figured out how to get chat to work so I can't

You have to download Java and then you enter it from the top bar.

Aw this sounds like a really cool idea, I wish I could use the chat room. I use a school-issued laptop so Java and the chat room is blocked


Yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers
But everything that lives is born to die
And so I say to you that nothing really matters
And all you do is stand and cry.
