This is a quick note to remind everyone of the 16 years and over age limit in place for our users, here at HealthUnlocked.
While we understand and strongly believe that all people should be able to gain knowledge and information regarding their health and well-being, we do have to enforce an age restriction. The reason we have this rule in place is because all of the advice on the site is anonymous and mostly not professional. Some of our users may not consider the different needs of younger members, and often, it's easy to misunderstand what someone means.
We ask our users to report any posts they believe to be shared by an underaged user via the report function from the drop-down menu. This allows us to remove their account and send an email advising the younger users to try and arrange a meeting with their GP to discuss their health concerns. We also link them to other organisations better equipped with supporting young people.
We appreciate your co-operation and understanding.
