Please help us to keep OOTS a safe, considerate and respectful community by reporting any posts that contravene our Member Guidelines. Some of the more common problems we see include:

•   No trigger warning is given when one is needed
•   The post contains overly graphic detail
•   Telling another member what they should do (versus suggesting a strategy, sharing what worked for them)
•   The tone of the post is Inappropriate tone (defensive, argumentative, disrespectful…)
•   The post hijacks the thread (turns attention away from the original post/poster)
•   Posting about wanting to commit suicide or engage in serious self-harm

All you need to do is click on the “Report to Moderator” button on the lower right hand side of the post, make a comment about what it is that you think is questionable or problematic when the dialogue box pops us, and the Moderating Team will take it from there.  Please note that we never reveal to anyone outside the team who has reported a post. 

If you have any questions about the above, please feel free to PM one of the Moderation Team.

Thank you!

When it comes to trauma, time does NOT heal all wounds. It is deeply embodied in our mind, body & spirit & requires compassionate, knowledgeable treatment & self-care.

If we want more/better trauma informed treatment & services, we must advocate for ourselves when & where we can.
