Yep I hear ya @j95 ..I really cannot speak for the entire forum. I do definitely know people on the forum think very highly of you though, even if you cannot see that yourself.
I think a really important thing with RO/Life in General/Mentorship/Peer Support is that we sort of help each other by asking the questions and discussing the issue, and to use the thread you just linked me to as an example - it is not that myself or @Ben-RO has the answers for you but that you in fact have the resources to find the right solution for you. You have put yourself through school, gotten a job, have a partner and two beautiful dogs and you have done that all on your own - that's how incredibly resourceful you are #impressiveee.
You are the expert of your life and as your peers we want to support you into finding the right answers/resources but the actual solution lies with you. You are very powerful, though it's not always easy to see that quality within ourselves.
Does this make sense?

"Here's another option https://www.legalaid.vic.gov.au/ I am fairly sure they can advocate for you if you have an issue with eheadspace and human rights commission. There's also an e-mail you could hit up for free email@example.com"
In terms of resource, that's what I would be doing if I were in your shoes currently. However, if this isn't working for you, and RO also isn't providing the kind of support you are after what would you ideally like in terms of support?
i.e. counsellor, legal advice, an older persons perspective, a friends perspective, your partner's thoughts? What's the ideal support look like to you? Because your wellbeing is important and if you need to go further than RO I def think go for it
