Individuals in all stages of healing are welcome here. We have community members of diverse walks of life and various backgrounds.
We want people to feel safe when using our groups and forums. For that reason, we’ve developed a set of community guidelines, outlined below. These policies will help you understand what type of sharing is allowed in our private groups and communities, and what type of content may be reported to us and removed. Because of the diversity of our global community, please keep in mind that something that may be disagreeable or disturbing to you may not violate our community guidelines.
- Individuals at all stages of healing are welcome here.
- We have community members of diverse walks of life and various backgrounds.
- Safe behaviors are required
- The programs included in our community are not replacements for individual therapy or for psychiatric care.
- If you have feelings indicating that you might be a threat to yourself (suicidal behavior) or someone else (homicidal behavior), please seek appropriate assistance by calling 911, contacting your therapist or presenting yourself to the nearest emergency room.
- Seeking peer support from community members for suicidal or homicidal feelings does not maintain the safety of this community for others and will not be tolerated.
- Membership is subject to suspension for 6 months or more and can only be reinstated following confirmation by your attending Therapist or Psychiatrist for suicidal behaviors.
- Keep it respectful
- Comments that are inappropriately negative, rude, or attacking will be deleted, removed, or we will ask you to revise your thoughts. Everyone is here to learn and grow, so anything violating that will be removed.
- No pitching to the group
- We have a strict ‘no shopping for customers’ policy in our groups. This includes pointing people to blog posts with your offers/affiliate offers and publicly asking members to join your Facebook groups or other communities. Be cautious of unsolicited private messages to group members. If we get multiple complaints that you or someone else is using private messages to make unsolicited pitches to members, you may be asked to leave. You should view the group as your peers, not your leads.
- No gated content
- Content posted in the groups cannot be used to harvest leads in any way.
- Respect confidentiality
- Content gathered in our Trauma Free Nation groups cannot be collected, repackaged, and/or shared outside the group. Every member of our communities has a right to privacy and the right to feel safe that their questions, answers, and experiences remain privy to group members only.
- Keep it on topic
- We reserve the right to remove posts based on off-topic content or offensive content.
- Partnering with other members for business purposes
- Access to this group does not mean that Trauma Free Nation, LLC, or Tamara Ridge endorses anyone’s products or services. Please be cautious and do your due diligence when interacting with anyone in the group – don’t assume everyone is trustworthy.
- Report posts that are breaking group policies
- Due to the large number of people in our groups and communities, it’s sometimes difficult for us to catch everything. If you see a post that is questionable, please report it, tag our community manager in the comments, or reach out to our community manager directly via private message so our team can review them.
- Breaking the rules
- If you are deemed to be breaking the rules of the group, The Center for Healthy Relationships as Tamara Ridge and/or Trauma Free Nation reserves the right to remove you from the Trauma Free Nation community.
