You also agree to reserve discussions and shared files and content to that are best suited to categories and sub-topics within the forum. This is a great community forum with which to solicit the advice of your peers, share your experiences, benefit from the experiences of others, gain access to resources and coping mechanisms and participate in important ongoing conversations.
This Community Access Agreement governs your participation in and use of the Community. The rules, terms and conditions set forth below in this Community Access Agreement (collectively referred to as the “Rules”) apply to all members of the Community (members, you, or users) and constitute a binding, legal agreement between you, the Safe-Space Community forum, I Chose Life website and its producers, administrator team, associates and affiliates.
The Safe-Space Community Forum is available to members for the purpose of providing an online community for the discussion of issues important to our society and that affect everyday people from all walks of life regarding mental health, suicide awareness, suicide ideation, the loss of someone to suicide, and the like.
The Safe-Space Community Forum is available to members for peer support, educational and informational purposes only. We are not offering any medical or mental health diagnosis, treatment nor recommending any "cures", only suggestions of coping mechanisms and sharing personal experiences that worked for other people.
Safe-Space Community members must rely solely on their own judgment with respect to all issues discussed. The website administrators, moderators and film producers make no representations or warranties regarding the experience, qualifications or information provided by members of our community.
All information posted on the Safe-Space Community Forum will be treated as confidential and, therefore, should not be shared outside of the community. Please respect the privacy of our community members. Anyone found in violation of this will be banned.
Members are prohibited from using the Safe-Space Community to solicit other members about their retail products, self-help programs for sale, or multi-level marketing opportunities. Members may not post commercial messages or promotions, advertising, or selling goods or services or otherwise partake in any acts that could be construed as "conducting business" on the forum.
Members are prohibited from sexually harassing or sexually soliciting other members. Any reports made to Administrators about this kind of behavior (with screen shots as proof) will result in an immediate ban of the violator.
Respect all community members, even if you disagree with what they have to say. Everyone has the same right to be here. Be mindful that everyone here is facing their own struggles and is here to find community support, resources, and a form of their own inner peace. If you have nothing kind to say, it might be best to say nothing. Be mindful before you speak (type).
Members should exercise both common sense and courtesy in the messages they transmit on the Community and may not use the Safe-Space Community to transmit defamatory, obscene, and otherwise offensive communications.
Members are prohibited from using the Safe-Space Community for any purpose that may be illegal.
