    Welcome to ReachOut Heythere! We’re so glad to have you here!

    If you’d like, you can start an introduction thread and tell us a little about yourself. Things like your favorite books, hobbies, or anything that you have on your mind! There’s even a thread with some more ideas and tips for introducing yourself!


    I look forward to seeing you around the forums!

    Okay I don't know what to say but I can tell you I am a nice person and like to explore nature on my own, though would love to have more company like friends. It sucks. :/

    Hello Chemical_kid and welcome to ReachOut! We’re glad that you’ve joined us here!

    I see that you’ve already found the Hanging Out & Games threads, so maybe you’d like to start your very own introduction thread and let us know a bit about yourself, your hobbies, skills, talents, and anything else you’ve got on your mind! If you’d like some intro ideas, you can check out this thread!

    I look forward to hearing more from you!

    Welcome to ReachOut thrive! It's great to have you with us!

    Exploring nature is one of my favorite things to do too! I like to take my camera with and capture the beauty as well. I'm really sorry to hear that you're having some difficulties in the friend department. I agree, it totally sucks. You've come to a place full of caring, supportive, fun and kind people! Feel free to look around, and start an introduction thread! If you'd like some more ideas on introductions, this thread has some ideas!

    I look forward to seeing you around the forums!

    Hi! I've been struggling with depression for about a year now and am excited to join this forum to connect with other about an experience that can cause so much isolation. I hope I'm doing this correctly!

    Hi! I'm new to this site. I've been recently struggling with school, and it has been taking a toll on myself. I hope this site can be helpful to uplift my spirit during this struggling period.
