Hey there! My name’s Dom. I’m a 22 year old male from Manchester, England.

I’m a musician (been playing drums for over a decade now), wannabe-rapper/poet, creative writer and generally just a stand-up guy with a passion for helping others.

Right now I’m not doing too good though. I’m in a mental health hospital on a Section 3 just waiting for somewhere to be discharged to. I know this is just a temporary thing but it has a lot to do with my abusive parent and unconventional childhood.

I would love to talk to anybody with a similar kind of story or honestly anyone at all! I get quite lonely sometimes and a good chat never fails to cheer me up (some nice memes are also appreciated 😏).

Thanks for having me in your safe space and I can’t wait to get to know you all a little better!

🙂

Hey dom, welcome to the community :)

It's cool that you play drums, i've been trying to. What's your favourite kind of music?

What kind of stuff do you write?

That really sucks, we have digital mentors here, who are @Monsoon, @Aurora, @Luie and @Blondie. All of them are trained psychologists

I’d say my favourite genres have always been Metal/Hard Rock but I’ve been tryna branch out into Jazz, Hip-Hop and even Electronic styles over the last few years. Even picked up bass guitar as a secondary instrument too!

I’ve been writing silly poem stuff my whole life from haikus when I’m bored to full rap songs when I have a lot I want to speak on. My goal is to release a full EP before 2023. I have the lyrics and I’ve found the beats I wanna use, I just need the technology and freedom to put it together.

I’ve also got a couple ideas for stories/screenplays in the works but I usually keep them to myself based on past experiences with sharing my ideas.

I will definitely check in with the psychologists you recommended whilst I wait for one IRL. In the meantime I’m just exploring this cool website for what it is! Thanks for getting back to me so quick, I feel like this could be a very comfortable space for me rn

🙂

Hi @GronkDaLuvbug, Welcome to Ditch the Label! It's great to have you here 😀. As @Emberfrost12 kindly pointed out, I'm Aurora and I'm one of the support mentors here. I give advice and support to those who reach out to us.

It sounds like you've been through a lot in life and I'm sorry to hear you're not doing too well at the moment. I'm glad you found us though. This is a really welcoming and supportive community and it's a safe space for everyone to talk about anything that's on your mind.  If you would like some advice or support with anything in particular you can either create a post on the forum or you can send us a confidential support request and a support mentor will get back to you.

Hi there,

welcome to DTL, lovely to have you here! Here at DTL there are different ways you can get involved , there are different sub forums for gender mental health etc where you can get support from. 

there are also support mentors here at DTL, they help and give advice when you post something in either of the sub forums or if you get in contact with them on confidential support.

confidential support is when you talk to a mentor 1-2-1 without anyone seeing your message except for the staff here at DTL. Does that make sense?

to be able to make a request you will need to follow these steps:

1) at the top of your screen there should be a tab called ‘confidential support’ click on that.

2) after you’ve clicked on that there should be a button that says make a support request, click on that.

3) after you’ve clicked on that, you’ll be brought to a page where you can type what’s going on for you.

4) after you’ve completed that step, you can press submit and a support mentor will get back to you within 48 hours! 
 

the staff here at DTL are, @Harper the community manager, here are the staff mentors @Blondie @Aurora @Luie @Monsoon

 

i hope this helped ❤️

Hi, I’m Samantha but you can also call me Sam, I am fine with either. I am 16 and I love to make art and just sit looking at the sky and birds. I am quite depressed but I have some motivation to live and that is carrying me :) I have 2 dogs and some chickens. I came here to see if I could make some connections and maybe find some answers.
