Registrations with Hotmail addresses. Due to technical fault outside of our control, user ID registrations via Hotmail/Live/Outlook addresses are not always successful and account activation emails are not always sent. Please use an alternative email address to register, if possible.
Role and support: Our Teens Online Support Group is a support group where people (aged 13-18 years) can come together in a safe space to support each other and talk about what is going on for them. The support group always has two facilitators to keep the group space supportive and safe for everyone. How much you want to talk is up to you.
Interacting and using the group:
Please ensure that you activate your user ID through the confirmation email, if you do not receive it, please check your junk mail folder in case it ended up there by mistake.
Video demonstration: Sometimes people are a little nervous about what the groups might be like, we have posted this short video on how the groups work (sound is not required).
