I am struggling with anxiety, depression, and burnout so I have personal experience with that.
Disclaimer: I am unable to chat with any crisis-related topics due to rules/guidelines surrounding it. I don't necessarily agree with these guidelines and policies, but I feel as though raising my concerns in the forums is a much more sensible way to go about it than breaking the guidelines.

~Quote The Raven, Nevermore~
"Sometimes there is no darker place than our thoughts, the moonless midnight of our mind" -Dean Koontz"We're all needed, even those who sometimes think we're worthless, plain and dull. If we love and allow ourselves to be loved...Well a person who loves is the most precious thing in the world, worth all the fortunes that ever were." -Dean Koontz"Being polite is not only the right way to respond to people, but also the easiest. Life is so filled with unavoidable conflict that I see no reason to promote more confrontations." -Dean Koontz"There's no such thing as being cowardly in a fight" -Edward Elric"Sometimes its good to be scared, it means you have something to lose" -Richard Webber"Just put one foot in front of the other, just get through the day." - Meredith Grey "I'm a human being, I make mistakes. I'm flawed, we all are." - Derek Shepherd"The future is the home of our deepest fears and our wildest hopes." -Owen Hunt
Green: I am available and currently taking chats Orange: I am online but I may be focusing my attention on other things and replies may be slower Red: I am offline or am unable to take chats at the moment.Transitioning to adult side. Please be patient as I make the adjustment and figure out topics I can take and how to deal with certain topicsI mainly keep my focus on long term members, but I will still support you whether you want to continue long term or not. If your intention is to want long term support, I am always open to supporting you through any struggle you are going through. If you are looking for long term, let me know in the message you leave and we can work on a plan as to what to work on. I am just one message away.Everyone has a purpose and you may not know yours yet, and that’s alright. For a lot of people it can be really difficult to find a purpose, but don’t give up on what you want to have or want to be later because of what is happening now. You have a real chance at success as long as you just try!!!A little about my listening style…I am always here for you when I am around, and no that does not mean I am always online as I have my limits but I don’t give up on my members. I mainly take long term members but I am open to setting up times to talk for both long term and short term support. My main topics are ADHD, depression, self-harm recovery, personality disorders, and anxiety but I am open to being there for you for other topics, but I do not have as much knowledge on other topics.
I am NOT a crisis resource, I will not turn you away for self-harm as long as it is past and you are not actively in crisis. In crisis would mean that you are actively harming yourself in any way or have an intention to do so or if you are currently at risk of harm from another person. Whether you are in a good mood or maybe not feeling so great, I am here to listen, and I can deal with anger and negative emotions just please remain respectful towards me and towards yourself during our chat so that I can best help. I am open to hearing your rants or being a sounding board and as long as you are not attacking me or anyone else. I will not get mad if you need to curse in my PMs to express those emotions and I can always be that safe place that you are able to come whenever you may need it. A little about me…My name is Isabelle and I am 18, transitioning to the adult side. I really enjoy Psychology and I’m not exactly sure what field I want to branch out to at this time, but I plan on majoring in Psychology and finding a way to make a difference in the world for all of the people that are struggling with mental illnesses. I am currently in my last year of school before going into college/university. This being said, things do get crazy so I am not here all the time and I may not be able to respond immediately, but I try to get back with you as soon as I am able. I have gone through my share of struggling throughout my life including struggling with depression, self-harm, ADHD, and many other things and I found my recovery here through listening and helping others. I understand the struggle of not having others understand and even professionals not quite getting the point and that is why I try to be here for each and every one of you as long as possible.

Thanks for reading,
Hello there! I'm Nenz, also known as 'Nenzilla the cookie giving monster' by certain members but fear not, I'm harmless... :P I'm glad you've stumbled across me on here. :) Everyone has struggles in life - whether they are big or small! Sometimes all it takes is a conversation to help you feel a little bit brighter. I love to make people smile - it makes me smile too. :D~ Why Aren't You Smiling? ~
Not taking new chats! Please message another listener for a live session! Thank you for understanding <3Thanks for stumbling into my profile :) It's very nice to see you! I'm Mel and I'm a young girl from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm a college student majoring in physics. In the future I would love to work in a laboratory studying neuroscience and illnesses regarding the human brain! I work as a support teacher for young kids mostly. I love teaching and explaining things - I think everybody deserves their chance at understanding a difficult matter, even if they need more time for it than someone else would.
I'm not much of a talker as a listener. I feel like it's very important that every single person out there has someone to rely on and be there for them. I want you to feel like you can tell me anything on your mind, feel heard, understood and never judged. That's what I aim for. I know I can't change your life nor magically solve your problems (Although I would really like to be able to do that) but I do can promise to be here, as much as possible and as much as you need. I'm your friend and I'll always care about you. I deal my own battles every day and I know that talking helps. You are never alone here.
I would like to be a writer someday, because books mean a lot to me. Everything I want is what I write to be special for someone, if I could make at least one (only one) person feel something by something I wrote, I would already feel realized. Writing has always come naturally to me. It's who I am. As a kid, I would always grab a pencil and write, instead of drawing. I would always make stories up in my mind to tell other people. I would always write too much, speak too much, and take too long to tell an anecdote. I was born a storyteller. At the moment, I just do it for fun and for myself or my closest ones.Anything else you would like to know about me, feel free to message me and ask, I'm pretty much an open book! and will love to get to know eachother more. Right now I have a very tight schedule, and I get aroun 5-10 new chats daily. Therefor my status is mostly offline because I can't take many more chats. I'm mainly working with scheduled chats only. If you need immediate help, I would recommend reaching to someone in the browse listeners page! My responses can take 2-3 days - but I'm always listening!
