Livejournal Depression Community
Depression - An emotional condition characterized by feelings of hopelessness, inadequacy, etc.

This community is for people who suffer from depression. It's an open community, but please be supportive. Someone on the brink of suicide does not need your condescension and anyone who feels the need to criticize will be banned.

Community Warnings:
-It's fine to promote your/other communities only if it's depression related. I will ban you if you break this rule.

-If somebody's asking for tips on how to kill themself and you respond with ideas, I'll give you a warning and delete your comment- OR you may be banned. It really depends on the situation.

-If somebody posts feeling suicidal and you respond with offers to help the person end their life, you will be banned.

-Please refrain from using inappropriate user icons in the community (Please read LJ FAQ #107: Content that incites violence against an individual, race, ethnicity, or orientation, pornographic content, etc).

-Please refrain from posting hate speech (racism, nazism, etc.) when posting in the community. We want to keep this a safe zone for everyone.

-Inappropriate comments, flame wars, trolling, etc, will not be tolerated in comments. Depending on the situation, the comments may get frozen, deleted, reported, and the users warned, banned or barred from the community.

Web-quizes and pictures: Depression related web-quizzes and surveys may only be posted behind an lj-cut. If it is not behind a cut or not on topic it may be deleted. Any 'triggering' written material should be put behind a clearly marked cut as well to give people the choice of whether they want to handle it or not. 'Triggering' pictures should not be posted. If you want to post pictures of yourself or something else depression-related, then please use an lj-cut.
