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.

I'll reply this way to everyone.I'd love to reply to everyone(I'll pick my speed and ability up!I'm learning lol)..I've made a suggestion,and like everything around us..It's got there by suggestion/debates..And this is no different.That's great and I am all for this.However there's a time and a place.I applaud everything giffgaff,more so for the communication and contact with others(it's something we have lost).I've actually felt like I wanted to come back,and I have...Because i wanted to,for me that's a mile stone!Now people will be getting bored here,but I'll carry on.

People with all manners of mental health issues, just want or would rather to speak to someone in the same position..A professional or simply someone genuine,That won't judge,laugh,ridicule and bully.To the everyday joe and I've had it,behave yeself and pull yeself together.We don't want that,we don't want debates,or looking for that 1 person that might understand.I

It has to be done properly with care and attention,that's why I feel a carefully thought forum with everyone in mind and people in the discussions for the right reasons.As a sufferer i on my own can't find anywhere without paying through the roof that I can just pop in to speak with like minded soles.I'm sorry if I have upset anyone,don't want to cause a war!It's simply an idea..

And thanks for pointing out the other sites rocket i wasn't aware...I'll take a look my friend..Thanks to all????Hope this makes sense,and I've sent this the right place????????????????

You can start a thread in General Discussion and those who need it can follow it.

Not a bad idea at all!

I wouldn't usually be so positive about such a request. Giffgaff is a mobile phone network afterall.

But it has a great community, that does care and it could be a good thing for giffgaff to get involved with and encourage sufferers to participate.

I don't think it should be in General Discussion, it should have it's own area, where it deserves to be.

Threads in GD get swallowed up and disappear to quickly. That would not be of value to mental health sufferers.

I hope giffgaff do take this request seriously and give it the thought it deserves.

Mental health sufferers come from all walks of life and do use mobile phone networks.

Be a leader giffgaff, it would help business too.

Good luck with your idea and I send you my best wishes.

It would need some service like Mind to help supervise such a sight, their Crisis Cafe could be a good point of reference. I am sure some of our community have a working knowledge of this n could offer guidance. What we should not do tho is segregate any one or leave them out!

It would need supervising,and it would never work without it.Nothing ever does without supervision.Maybe we don't have to have a separate area for,"health and well being"..Pop it on the list were discussions are...Just somewhere designated for people suffering,and feel there is no one else to turn to..And we should never exclude anybody from anything. Together we conquer!!xx
