Jade's purpose is to offer general support and comfort to children and teenagers trying to cope with the problems of life.  However............

Certain sensitive, harmful or downright dangerous Topics are forbidden in the Chat room.  Among these are:- "Details, methods, plans or intentions of Suicide or any form of Self-Harm/Self-Injury including Drug Abuse."

What this means is that Users may freely discuss their anxieties, their depression, despair and other feelings which are leading them to such thoughts, intentions or actions, but those Topics themselves are beyond our scope to help with or to listen to.  Very sorry.

The Moderators and other Users of our Chat room are not trained or equipped to help those who need emergency assistance in a crisis.  Please refer to a country below for a telephone number you can call where you will receive the help you need:-
