Giffgaffs Health and we'll being forum.

By: hhsol04 | 09-09-2019 10:37

Hi guys....

I myself have quite severe physical and mental health issues,with few people to talk to!I've searched high and low for a place just to chat...And without paying through the nose or being judged by others,I can't find anywhere!I go day's without talking to anyone,and I'm not alone.1000s of people from all walks of life are suffering alone unnecessarily.If only we had somewhere free and already able to reach 1000s of sufferers!

We already have... Giffgaff already have a caring and inviting community.So would it be possible for us already Giffgaff members and others welcome to have forum to air our thoughts and have communication with other like minded individuals?

Mental health issues along with suicide are ridiculous...And with all the stigma a lot of people suffer in silence..With us all being behind screen's I feel it would give people the chance to talk without being judged! Further down the line maybe make friends...

But more importantly we are all in the Health forum for a reason,to talk and be heard with a sympathetic reply from your fellow, sufferers/ Giffgaff gaffer's alike!! Thanks guy's xx

I came up with this idea, because I'm a complex sufferer and we need a new way of communicating and helping others with there life struggle's.

sorry to hear of your ailment but i dont think it deserves its own forum.

why not just carry on in general discussion.there is always someone there to talk to

Cheers matey...No apologies needed.Im used to it now it's everyone else!Lol.Id just like to see somewhere... ANYWHERE.....A place we can lose ourselves in because we're already excepted before we go in.Ill chat to anyone behind screen,but with a separate area... Sufferers will automatically feel at ease??Me anyway!

This Is AnExcellent Idea. People are saying just to post in the general community forum but that isn't really appropriate in my eyes because alot of people are wanting help to do with their accounts or network problems and issues, last thing they would want to see is people commenting about mental health issues, self-harming, suicidal thoughts etc... That stuff could cause a person who may not be depressed to become depressed after a while looking at posts like that. I myself suffer from certain mental health issues and diagnosed symptoms so i know how much a separate forum for this idea of a mental health and wellbeing forum separate to the general forum would be a massive thing to have and use for support, communication, it would help people to see that they are not alone in their struggle.


It would definitely be better for a separate forum for such a community discussion forum other than the main general community.


I hope that this is something giffgaff would actually consider in creating for people to have a place to talk, get help and also a place where they can also help others.

Good idea, but then the forum does offer a chance to air your views. Sorry you have problems. Sure someone on forum would always chat to you, I would

The Social forum is exactly built for talking to fellow giffgaff members about anything that you want! I don't think a Health and Wellness forum would be widely used
