Hey there!

That's a very good question, and one that is commonly asked. Very recently, TeenHelp announced a new feature that will allow you to delete your account/page - though it takes 7 days after the request to fully delete. The reason why it takes 7 days is because TeenHelp can't "un-delete" your account, so they installed a safety net (of 7-days) in case you change your mind and decide you don't want it deleted. As far as what you post, I believe that always stays on TeenHelp - but after the deletion of your account, the name under the post(s) are changed to "Unregistered" or "Anonymous" as to not identify you.

You can request account deletion here: http://www.teenhelp.org/delete

Best wishes,

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

Everything Chris said is correct. I just want to add on a little. Any posts will become anonymous but they will not be deleted unless you link to specific posts that you would like to be removed. We will not remove every single post a person makes, because some people have hundreds or thousands of posts and that just isn't feasible! But if there are any specific ones that you would like to be edited or removed, link to those ones.
