  1. How did you first hear about ReachOut and when did you decide to get involved on the forums as a user?I first heard about Reach Out earlier this year when I decided to completely change my occupation in the midst of COVID-19. I was working in the Film and TV industry and decided to go back to uni to take the plunge and follow my passion: mental health! I decided to get involved as a volunteer earlier this year to connect with awesome like-minded people!  
  2. What's your favourite post thread? Friday Fives for sure! 
  3. Why did you decide to become a Builder? I decided to become a builder because I'm passionate about the wellbeing of young people, probably because I am one myself! I loved the idea of being a part of such a supportive and accepting community, coming together to promote healthy psychosocial wellbeing!
  4. What do you do during the day (Study? Work? Hunt ghosts? Fight Crime? Taste cupcakes?)? I am currently studying my master's of counselling and pyschotherapy and work as a mental health support worker. I also am a musician in my free time and am currently launching a solo project. 
  5. Do you have any weird hobbies (Train a rubber duck army? Teach lizards Spanish? Learn how to the master the recorder?)? Dog and people watching. Falling over.

Re: Introduce Yourself Here - NEW BUILDERS!

It's so great to hear your following your passions and welcome, I hope you enjoy this community

Re: Introduce Yourself Here - NEW BUILDERS!

  1. How did you first hear about ReachOut and when did you decide to get involved on the forums as a user? I think the first time I heard of ReachOut was my first year of uni when I became more aware of different online spaces for mental health and everyday help. I wanted to become a user as a way of both putting skills I've learned into practice and developing some experience as I recently got my undergrad psychology degree woo-hoo!
  2. What's your favourite post thread? Looking through the threads I really like the "looking after mental health is an everyday commitment" as in my experience it's easy to forget how important doing things for your mental health is daily rather than just when things start feeling tough. 
  3. Why did you decide to become a Builder? I am really happy that I was able to complete my undergrad psych degree and really want to be able to help people in the best way I can through the skills I've learned 
  4. What do you do during the day (Study? Work? Hunt ghosts? Fight Crime? Taste cupcakes?)? At the moment I am hoping to study a master's of social work in early 2021 and am currently looking for work that I can do as a bit of a side hustle.
  5. Do you have any weird hobbies (Train a rubber duck army? Teach lizards Spanish? Learn how to the master the recorder?)? I like to play guitar most days. I also love collecting records that I'm into. 
  6. What's you're all time favourite TV show? Hard to go past Seinfeld, always puts a smile on my face.

I like to workout, walk my dog, study psychology, listen to music, and I also work as a waitress in a restaurant! I really love to go to the beach or the movies in my spare time. I love coffee and eating chocolate too Smiley Happy

I'm a huge fan of Grey's Anatomy!

Re: Introduce Yourself Here - NEW BUILDERS!

Welcome to all our new builders!

 

I have been blown away by the number of people wanting ton jump online and help others the last through months.

 

Had to jump in and say hi to a fellow Grey's Anatomy fan @Maybel9595! My fav show of all time. I am currently rewatching again for the bazillionth time. Anddddd season 17 is coming in 3 weeks time. Who's your favourite character?

Re: Introduce Yourself Here - NEW BUILDERS!

@Jess1-RO I will quickly mention that I'm not up to date yet! I've only watched up to season 13 because that's what was on Stan at the time (I'm yet to catch up on the season they recently added). I've been watching it since I was 16 and somehow always a bit behind the currently airing season, but that means I'm never without new episodes to watch Smiley Happy

 

My all time favourite character is Alex Karev Heart. I love his character development and the friendship he and Meredith share.
