♥️ LGBTQ+ Community Support
⸻ ⸻ ⸻ ⸻
The Community Support Group program is a new program designed by the managers of the LGBTQ+ studio. Participating members will be assigned to a group of three or four. The groups provide a place to form bonds, vent, and find peer support.
Main studio: https://scratch.mit.edu/studios/5842709/comments/
Anyone can join, and there's absolutely no shame in joining!
"Partnerships and Collaboration" is the second "key" in the SPRC's Effective Suicide Prevention Model.
To be assigned to a group, say your name and if you have specific needs/disorders that you'd like us to take into consideration. You may also include pronouns! For instance:
"Rowan / anxiety".
Start a group thread like this: "Thread for Group #:"
How to respond to a suicidal comment: 1) Ask how they're doing, if applicable. 2) List reasons to stay alive. 3) DON'T reply with "oof," "same," "mood," or your own problems. 4) Make sure that they know that asking for help isn't a weakness. 5) Provide links to hotlines: thetrevorproject.org imalive.org suicidepreventionlifeline.org medicalnewstoday.com/articles/327007 w.wiki/pvb
If you'd like to read a member's bio, ask @DogCatPuppyLover on her profile.
