All sections of this website are moderated. Our voluntary moderation team works diligently to ensure that only suitable and appropriate material or conversation appears within this website or in our chat rooms. The moderation team are however only human. If something that is generally considered unacceptable (and is against our guidelines), appears briefly overlooked, please accept our sincere apologies. We request that everyone reads our guidelines in their entirety.

Notes on Web 2.0

This however does not extend to Personal Messages sent via the Depression Forums or comments left on individual Depression/Anxiety Blogs (unless the recipient elects to make this information public at a later date).

  • Users have the ability to edit any posts made on the Forums and/or Blogs, thus empowering them to delete all, or part, of the material they have submitted.  Individual user accounts can be deleted by Contacting Us.

Depression Understood only promotes positive mental health. However, we cannot be held liable to how anyone reacts to any content found within this site, or to that of any external links this website hosts.
