Facebook Group - The Rules
Check the Welcome Post for FAQs – if you’re having a freak-out day or have questions about medication, chances are the question has been asked and answered before – take a look there and see.
My boss makes me anxious – can you help with that? I don’t really understand what you mean by Mind? How do I share what I’m learning with others? I’m going back to work today – will you all cheer me on? All good stuff – post away! However see Rule 3.
Apologies for the crassness, but you know what I mean, right? We are looking in the direction of mental health and wellbeing. We do our best to create a beautiful environment where you can drop in at any point, and no matter your state of mind, you can find hope and inspiration. Before you post, ask yourself the simple question above. If yes, read, don’t post.
When we’re anxious, we think about ourselves a lot. Please consider this before you post: if a newbie, all full of hope, landed in this group right after I post this, would it take them closer or further away from peace of mind.
Yes, this is a rule!! This is a lighthearted group, full of love, humour and mental health. Enjoy it, have a laugh and feel the love of your new ALPOM family!
6. Be Responsible
As a participant in the Little Peace of Mind Facebook Group, you acknowledge that whilst coaching is a potentially life-changing experience, you also accept that it is not an intervention in the form of therapy and that, at all times, you remain responsible for your choices, actions, thoughts, and feelings.
You also understand that you are the custodian for your own health, and that neither Nicola Bird or any of our Community Managers are medical practitioners. You fully aware that the essence of all our Facebook Groups will be to direct you towards a greater sense of emotional wellbeing that may have a positive effect on your physical and mental health. You understand it is your responsibility to consult with a physician and/or qualified medical practitioner before making any changes to your medical treatment regime(s) or if you have any symptoms that cause you concern.
You further acknowledge that I understand that this Facebook Group is not a substitute for proper medical healthcare, and that no guarantees have been made to you directly or indirectly regarding the likely results you can achieve as a result of my participation.
By joining this Facebook Group, I also agree not to hold Nicola Bird or any other practitioner introduced by her in a teaching capacity into the program, nor the Simplicity Project Ltd (Trading as A Little Peace of Mind)., it’s respective officers, directors, staff or contractors, or any other participant of the group liable for any losses or damages, including any perceived or actual negative changes in your health, whether mental, physical, or emotional that occurs as a direct or indirect result of your participation in this Facebook Group, in perpetuity.
We’re all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Let’s treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required.
Being part of this group requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private. What’s shared in the group should stay in the group.
Give more to this group than you take. Self-promotion, spam and irrelevant links aren’t allowed. Please don’t fill our group newsfeed with motivational quotes. We know these can be very inspirational but we would rather hear YOUR insights and questions, rather than those of others – that’s what truly adds value to the group.
10. Do not Private Message other members of the group unless invited to do so
Sometimes you might read a post by one of our Community Mangers or group members and want to reach out to the person who posted to see if they can support you on your own journey. If so, by all means reply to them within the group, by we would ask you not to reach out to them directly via private messenger for support unless they specifically post they are happy for this to happen. Why? Because in the past we’ve had valuable members of our community leave our group because of the amount of unsolicited messages they receive when they post and we want to keep them as a resource for everyone! We will shortly have a number of very affordable private coaching slots available for members of our community if you do feel you need more private support – but in the meantime, please do keep discussions within the group.
Please note, posts that violate these rules will be removed and serial offenders will be taken out of the group! Sorry to be bossy but want to run my groups for the benefit of the most number of people!
