We are a community of peers who support each other through life and mental illness.
Hi and welcome!
I'm Zen and I am the founder of The Haven Support. The Haven is an 18 and over peer support mental health chat on Discord (a voice, video, and text platform designed for gamers) for everyone looking for support and a community of caring peers, with and without mental illness.
The Haven Support is a nonprofit organization. Our goal is to help provide members living with mental illness with financial aid or access to sufficient mental health care.
Everyone is welcome to join The Haven, whether you’re living with mental illness, have a friend or family member who is, or you’re just going through a rough time. Peer support is unique and facilitates an environment of compassion and understanding. It is vital to share experiences with people who understand and relate.
We have 10+ support channels where you can have one on one chats with other members about whatever is troubling you, as well as channels for group support. Many members have volunteered their time to focus on providing support for others when they feel able. You may find that sometimes no one is available to chat, due to the unpredictable nature of an international volunteer network. However, we do our best to ensure that no one feels alone.
Our community is diverse and often lively. There are channels for selfies, venting, general mental health conversation, and a daily prompt to spur your mind into action. We sometimes hold groups on The Haven in voice chat and over text that focus on specific aspects of mental illness, like CBT and DBT.
We host a variety of recreational events like group video game sessions, coloring events, selfie contests, and reading aloud. We also have a new forum hosted by PsychCentral that is open to everyone 13 and up! Check it out. This includes friends, family, and loved ones, as well as people who just want to help out.
We are diligent about maintaining a safe space for our users. The moderating team is active and takes the safety of our community seriously. Please do not hesitate to bring issues to team members.
If Discord is unavailable, you can find us on Telegram, or for questions before you join you can ask via the chat at the bottom of the page.
Welcome to The Haven. We're happy to have you here.
