The mods previously have said they will not comment again on this subject. It is disgraceful that a mental health charity refuses to employ the views of its service users, in fact it must be the only one I am aware of that does not value and encourage service user participation. Even the statutory sector of NHS trusts are expected to have service users on their boards of directors.

I hope people are aware of this disregard and disrespect when considering donating to a mental health charity and pick one where the service user is valued, not considered a hindrance like Sane.

@CharitySANE Sane's refusal to reinstate the PM function on their forums despite users' pleas shows they care little about service users - 05 Jan

Well done for getting a response from the mods ooby.
I had given up trying but perhaps there will actually be movement from Sane on this issue.
I think it is crucial if the forum is to survive.
Time will tell.
Thank you for your persistence.

OOBY. I have not had response to the message I sent or to this petition so glad to see they have responded to someone. I hope they see sense soon as I think it's ridiculous. I thought they valued its users and their feedback but having closed the PM function is only making me believe this is nit the case.
Please keep showing support for the reintroduction of this service.
Thank you!

Dear All,
For those of you who do not know me, my name is Kay.
I used to be a member of this site. About a year ago i felt the need to leave the site. It is almost a year ago that PM was removed from the forum.
I contacted the moderating team both via the site and the email. i did get an email response but i was told that the response was for me and it was not for me to share on the site.
I do not see that they listened to anything that i told them, or that the board members were saying at that time. They believe they have their reasons and they were going to stick to them. There did not even seem to be a space for change or 'compromise'.

I really hope that the PM system can be bought back for many peoples sake, and lives.

Please though do not get your hopes up too much or get yourself too wound up or hurt over this. I did, i got very angry and it did not help me mentally either.
I also felt the need to leave saneline as i could no longer be part of a board where the moderating team where not appearing to listen to board members. it hurt me too much.

my best wished to everyone. i hope everyone is safe tonight.
take care of yourself and each other.
keep strong

kay

Kay I remember you!
I miss you and lots of other people too.
I don't understand why Sane won't listen and reconsider.
A huge trigger for me is not being listened to which is very ironic.
It's no loss of face to reverse a decsion - in fact quite the opposite.
Please take care and lpok after yourself.

Kay- good to see you back even if it's a flying visit. Thank you very much for your input. Hope life is treating you well and you will remember even if Sane is not listening WE are!

To everyone else who has put there name to this petition please know . Am grateful, I feel very much comforted to know it's not just me who shares this opinion. Keep safe everyone.

also signing the petition but I'm not getting active on this again. It was the end of me on here the last time.
You are braver than you think, and stronger than you know.
