How joining My Circle for Parents can help
If you join My Circle for Parents, you can use the browser on your mobile phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer to participate. It runs on HumHub, which is a secure and open-source platform used to create social networks that run on your preferred Internet browser.
If you're having trouble logging in, please try logging in using the email address you used to create your account. If you still can't login, you can email the moderator team at [email protected] and one of our team will get back to you as soon as they can!
Yes - we are only there to support you and listen.
The only time we might need to tell somebody is if you or others are in danger of being significantly harmed or we are legally required to share information. In times like this we may have a responsibility to protect you and someone else from harm and meet our legal responsibilities. (Our “Duty of Care”.)
We will privately message you about this beforehand wherever possible.
My Circle is safeguarded by a team of specially trained clinical moderators who have allied health backgrounds. Their job is to ensure that conversations are safe, supportive, informative and accurate.
While clinical moderators may jump in every now and then to comment on member's posts, it's important to note that the platform is not a counselling or crisis service - if you need crisis support or are having immediate thoughts of ending your life, please seek urgent support from Parentline in your state or Emergency Services (police, ambulance) on 000 (24hrs).
Because My Circle for Parents encourages and supports you to tackle problems on your own with the support of peers, you may find this isn’t enough, especially if you are going through a very difficult situation. Please contact Parentline if you need extra support.
If you’re needing any more information about My Circle, then please contact us at [email protected] so one of our team can assist you.
