Forums to reflect, take stock and survive! A sanctuary is typically a safe place to unload and shelter but that also means the Survivors' Sanctuary is a safe place to unload negative feelings as well as positive aspects of healing.
HAVOCA Pen Pal Community Some survivors prefer not to post publically. This section allows those shy, more cautious members, to request Pen Pals. To request a Pen Pal simply start a new topic and express how you'd like to be contacted; either by PM, email or reply to the post. BE CAUTIOUS ABOUT REVEALING EMAIL ADDRESSES IN POSTS. In most instances PMs should suffice until freindship and trust has been built. Any questions or concerns please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Celebrating Achievements All too often we concentrate on the negative feelings we experience during recovery. This section is a place to list all of our achievements, either real, aspired to or aimed for.
Members' Portrait Gallery A gallery to publish pictures of yourself. If you are browsing this forum and haven't posted your own picture yet please respect the bravery of those that have posted. Breaking the silence and the secrecy is one way to break the cycle of abuse. Subforum:
Rant and Rave This is a place where you can broadcast a one way transmission to the world about any issues, fears, hates or problems you have. Rants and raves about other members/posts from this forum are not permitted, in this case, please reply to the topic in question or PM the person concerned. You can read other poeple's rants but you won't be allowed to reply. This allows members to throw a wobbly without fear of retribution, judgement or sympathy.
Life Beyond This forum is for those people who have finished therapy or their course of treatment. They have emerged out of the otherside but are still left wanting/needing more. Perhaps they feel isolated or unable to find their way. It can also be used for sharing positive experiences and supporting others who are stuck between surviving and thriving. Endings have a huge impact in life and simply 'moving on...' doesn't always cut the mustard when it comes to the complexities of healing. This forum is for anyone who wants to share their fears, hopes, aspirations or experiences of the future.
Survivors Memorial **NEW**A place to remember and honour Survivors who have sadly passed away. Commemorating death is an important aspect of our journey and this forum allows members to grieve for fellow survivors in any way they seem appropriate. Feel free to write a full eulogy or just leave a picture (e.g a candle or some flowers).
