Many people here have, or have had, mental health issues they may not be able or willing to talk about with local friends and family, but know that many people here suffer those same conditions.



Some but not the majority.

We are a safe haven for those that need comfort and refuge, they will always be welcomed. If I'm not stepping out too far to say that? Just my feelings about this being a church as I see it. :)

Like, don’t like; qualified, not qualified; comfortable with talking to others or not… what really matters is that someone may, someday, for some reason, reach out or/and need some kind of help.

I will say that on more than one occasion I have had people come to me with very real personal issues and I could really do nothing more than listen and help them get in touch with people at their local assistance centers, depending on the nature of the issue. Am I trained in any of this? Nope. Do I operate a “hot line?” Nope. But I am a Jedi and when someone reaches out for help I will do my best to assist them and at the very least try and help them contact local, professional help.

I like to think that any Jedi would do that without question or debate… and I hope that any Knight of Jediism would do it happily.

Seriously, let’s take a second and think about it. How many people here have ever had someone they knew have some kind of issue and they came to you seeking help; or, at least an ear to listen to them? Did you tell them, “I’m not qualified to help you.” Or ask if they were comfortable talking to you? Or whatever.

I’m sure you were setting there thinking, “How do I keep getting drug in to these kinds of things?” Well, I have thought that at least. :P

But, in my opinion, Jediism is about service. We serve. Whether it is the force, the future, our friends, our acquaintances, families or complete strangers… we are there for them. And service comes in many forms. Sometimes it’s action, sometimes it’s inaction. And that is part of what we look to better learn as we go along this particular path. Which is needed, when and how we go about it.

It’s seems that many feel Jediism is solely the personal journey. But what is life without all that we interact with? And what would be the point? Maybe we should each step back and contemplate why it is we are here… and what we hope to accomplish.

Can those people who know of such charitable organisations please provide some links to them in this thread. Could a short a one line description of what services this organisation provide also be included as well as information on which countries these organisations operate in.

If one person did it by themselves they would almost definitely miss some or even whole topics that just never came to mind.

That is going to be a long list ...

These sorts of crisis ressouces are regional, and we're an international organisation.

Anywhere in Europe one can call the 112 if someone is really on the brink of suicide/homicide (or both) ... but for just talking something out, those things are usually much more local. Then, getting a list of these to cover our whole membership area -- we're going to need some help ...

Perhaps we should divide it up... there are people here from many cOuntries... If we can do what we can with the members we have then we can keep adding to it as our membership expands to other countries.

Exactly ... well found, KA ! :)

If we could all just provide the ones for our geographical area here, then M could consolidate them into one document.

It would be a good idea to 'test' the links before sending them in ; sometimes they are dead and that wouldn't be help-ful.

We're a little compassion impoverished here in France ; one had certainly better not be having a problem late in the evening or at week-ends ... (like, when most happen) :angry:
