Deviation from the Norm

Stumbled into this photo on Facebook, what are your thoughts? Do you think it's a negative thing to have societal norms or are they there for a reason?

Everything has to Start Somewhere

Welcome to our first post! If you've just stumbled across us feel free to take a look through the tabs at the top to learn a little more. We've created this blog to be a space in which we can interactively discuss a wide range of topics, where people can hopefully share without feeling judged or discriminated against.

In the months to come we plan on covering topics like:

  • GLBTQ awareness
  • Self harm and harm reduction
  • Bullying
  • Eating Disorders
  • Self image and self esteem 
  • Sexuality
  • Depression/anxiety
  • Suicide
  • Abuse/Domestic Violence
  • Mental Health issues ( ie. ADD/ADHD, bipolarism, OCD etc.) 
  • Relationships ( romantic, platonic, monogamous, poly)
  • Substance use/abuse, 

Though some of the topics we cover might be on the heavy side, this space is not limited to those 18 and over. We believe that people of all ages are affected by many of these issues and shouldn't be sheltered from learning more about them.

We'll be posting periodically so stay tuned! If you have any suggestions for topics you'd like to see covered, please leave us a comment or drop us an email. All messages will be answered.
