I almost feel like a stranger here its been so long! Its been a non-stop year since I've joined the forums with as many ups as downs but now that I've turned 26 I'm afraid the time has come for me to say goodbye!
My time at RO is something I will cherish forever - the connections I've made myself and seen across the forums, the welcoming and supportive mod and builder team (not to mention Jess and the RO team!), the shared and unique lived experiences and the SUPPORT! RO was my introduction to the power of peer support which will be something I carry with me and probably professionally pursue after I finish my social work bachelor next year!
To see and be apart of the work that RO does for young people & their mental health has been such an important part of my personal journey that will always hold a special place in my heart.
But its onwards and upwards! I am on my final placement as a student social worker at a mental health inpatient unit at a public hospital right now doing a mixture of front-line and policy work
Talking about and sharing our experiences especially as young people is so, so, so important and valuable. You never know what reading your story could do for someone else who is suffering or alone.
Thank you to everyone who has shared kind words with me during my time on the forums, it is something that I will never forget! RO has reminded me that we are never alone in our experiences or feelings and that there is always someone to reach out to!!!
No human being, however great or powerful, was ever so free as a fish
