Welcome to the Positive Wellbeing During Self-Isolation Community for supporting individuals who are self isolating or social distancing due to coronavirus (COVID-19).

We’re very glad you have chosen to be a part of our community. The Positive Wellbeing During Self-Isolation community - offered by HealthUnlocked - supports individuals who are self isolating or social distancing. Whether you are an individual who has been diagnosed, or you're taking action to limit your risk, we hope this community is a safe and supportive place for you to share your experiences and find information and support.

------------------------------------------------

The guideline highlights:

• Be kind, respectful, and understanding of one another - this is a scary time but we are all in this together

• Post from your own experience - “For me, this worked…” rather than “You should do this…”

• This is a space for emotional support - keep the medical advice to the professionals

• Only share third-party information when absolutely necessary and from credible sources

• No political content - it only causes arguments

• This community should not be used for commercial or personal promotion - no selling, no fundraising, no spam

• If you see something you’re concerned about, use the reporting functionality to flag it to the moderation team

------------------------------------------------

This community is moderated by HealthUnlocked.

The Positive Wellbeing During Self-Isolation community is part of HealthUnlocked, a network of 700 conditions and wellness communities from organisations you know and trust. By using this community on HealthUnlocked, you are accepting these posting guidelines and agree to HealthUnlocked’s Terms of Use. Members of the Positive Wellbeing During Self-Isolation community should read the terms in conjunction with the Positive Wellbeing During Self-Isolation Community Guidelines outlined below.

HealthUnlocked’s Terms of Use: healthunlocked.com/policies...

Below are the Positive Wellbeing During Self-Isolation Community Guidelines, which are aimed at creating and maintaining a safe and supportive community for all of our members.

Professional Health Information:

The Positive Wellbeing During Self-Isolation community strives to provide useful, up-to-date information on matters of concern to individuals within the Positive Wellbeing During Self-Isolation community. The information posted on this site should not be used as a means of diagnosis, determining treatment, nor replace the relationship between you, your doctors and other healthcare professionals. For diagnosis and treatment options, you are urged to consult your physician or trusted medical resources.

Community Atmosphere:

The Positive Wellbeing During Self-Isolation Community is a safe, supportive, informative, and friendly community for people who are self isolating or social distancing. Your participation in this community should be with respect, honesty and in the spirit of supporting and learning from fellow members.

Please note that while HealthUnlocked is an organisation based in the United Kingdom, members may be located worldwide. As such, details on approved medications, treatment protocols, healthcare, insurance, and other related topics may differ and should always be verified depending on your specific location.

Posting Content (Posts/Questions/Replies/Private Messages):

Content posted by individual members does not represent the views of HealthUnlocked.

Posting content on this community is taken as your agreement to post information that is true and accurate to the best of your knowledge, and is primarily drawn from personal experience. You are encouraged to post content from your own experience (or that of a loved one), ask questions, and offer support and advice.

When you post third-party information, such as information about new treatments or diagnosis methods, you are asked to provide references and links to sources wherever possible. Please ensure links are to a reputable site. Any content that is shared from other social media platforms that does not contain links to reputable sites may be removed.

Remember that content in this community does not replace the relationship between you and doctors or other healthcare professionals nor the advice you receive from them.

Content should never be abusive, derogatory, sexually explicit or suggestive, deliberately misleading, unsafe or contain spam. If you believe someone else’s content violates this rule, please report it via the “Report” button. Content that is felt to violate this policy or Terms of use will either be edited or removed. All reports are read by admins and moderators and it is their judgement on what action, if any, is taken.

HealthUnlocked is not responsible for any offence or injury that a member may draw from another member’s content.

Any content posted on this community can be read, used, reproduced, and cited by other users of the site. You have the option to delete content you have posted.

Moderating Content:

Content posted on this community is moderated by HealthUnlocked. Moderation occurs only after content is posted.

Moderation helps maintain a safe, positive environment for all members of the community. If there is a breach of these Community Guidelines or HealthUnlocked’s Terms of use:

Content may be edited or removed to ensure that the community remains supportive and responsive for all members.

Members may be temporarily or permanently restricted from the community.

The community is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Moderation occurs after posting and primarily between the hours of 9 AM and 5 PM GMT Monday through Friday.

Solicitations:

Please note that HealthUnlocked does not endorse or recommend any specific products, services, therapies, or activities mentioned by any third party (individual or company).

Commercial content or excessive self-promotion will be removed from the community.

Online Safety:

In this community, there may be discussions of health-related issues and sharing of personal information.

Please note that the Positive Wellbeing During Self-Isolation Community is an open site, meaning that any posts are searchable by internet search engines and can be shared via social media platforms. The default setting of posts allows them to be visible to individuals who are not members of the community. If you would rather your content was not searchable, you can change the visibility of your post by selecting "Only community members" before clicking submit. This will result in only the post title and first line of text being visible to those who are not members of the community. However, doing this will limit the number of people who will find and benefit from the information you have shared. We suggest members leave posts open for everyone to find if they are comfortable doing so to ensure more people find communities and benefit from the wealth of information on HealthUnlocked.

For your own safety, you should not disclose personal information such as your full name, email address, home address, telephone number, or any other information which could directly or indirectly identify you.

Thank you, MaddieHU! Is it permissible for me to share links to videos I've recorded of myself leading yoga practices (gentle, mixed-level, and chair-assisted) for members to use? There are no references to my studio nor anything said to promote same. Just hoping to contribute, in a small way, to helping us all stay strong and centered through this time. Be well!

Hi yazbe, Thanks for reaching out to ask about this! I think that sounds like a really lovely idea, and as you won't be referencing your studio it should be fine to post :)

Thank you!

I am glad for this group thank you for setting it up. Despite my living with my wonderful loving caring husband and young daugther it can at times feel very lonely and frustrating on the Lupus symptoms level. Sharing really is caring comes to mind. Thank you.

Thanx for the welcome and wise words MaddieHU.
