Hello! Welcome to MD Junctions Borderline in the Family Support Group!

The most important aspect of a support group is that it provides a safe space so that its members are able to open up and ask for the support they need. In order for everyone in this group to feel as safe as possible we ask that all members please follow all of the group rules listed below.

Group Rules

1) No Arguing

While we fully understand that people's opinions may vary, it is extremely important for members to be as tolerant and respectful as possible when responding to posts. Posting about our personal lives is an act of vulnerability, and attacking the views expressed in a post may keep that member from ever being able to open up and ask for support in the future. If you have something unkind to say, please keep it to yourself.

2) No Offensive Language

We ask that all members do their best to avoid offensive language and swear words for the same reasoning making everyone in the group feel as comfortable and respected as possible. Sometimes this can be difficult when writing a particularly heated or emotional post, but please do your best to find more respectful language when expressing yourself. This is also important as some of our members are underage.

3) No Discussion of Religion

No one is banishing god or religion! not any specific god and not any specific religion... and that is the point.

People come to MDJunction to deal with their health issues and challenges regardless if they are Christians, Jews, Muslims or any other religion. i believe we have people from almost every known religion!

There are numerous sites and forums for religious talks and discussions but we ask that you keep those discussions away from MDJunction as our team is simply not qualified to settle any religious conflicts in the forums.

It's OK to say thanks to your god, it is ok to say god helped you making it all you do on most of your posts starting discussions on how Jesus, Moses, Mohammad are the way to healing - PROHIBITED.

4) No Discussion of Suicide

This is a biggie. Suicide talks are strictly against our terms of service as we don't have the medical training, ability or knowledge to deal with them.

Members who post suicide attempt/threats will be deleted from MDJunction immediately without warning. This is not to punish anyone but is for the good of the group and the emotional well-being of the group members.

If you are contemplating suicide PLEASE contact your local Emergency Suicide Hotline or call 911

5) No Spam

Advertising of products, websites, or any type of profit company is prohibited. It is okay to recommend a product or link for information, but advertising goods or services for sale creates the wrong environment for a support group.

Spammers will be reported to the head of MDJunction and will be subsequently deleted from the site.

If you have any problems, questions, or concerns, be it with another member, with any of the rules listed above, or anything really, please feel free to PM a group leader and we will help you to the best of our abilities.
