GUIDE is a provider of behavioral health and wellness information and a platform facilitating a supportive social network. Although third-party evidence resulting from research exists, which indicates some behaviors and practices such as regular exercise, meditation, gratitude, effective communication, sleep, and breathing techniques, by way of example, may help in prevention and/or recovery from certain symptoms and conditions, GUIDE in no way claims, represents, or guarantees our Services provide any physical, mental, or therapeutic benefit.

(1) Confidentiality is imperative, as members share personal information about themselves and their loved ones here. Even though this is an anonymous platform, what is posted in the group stays in the group.
(2) Our goal is to provide support for one another. Compassion rather than criticism is the goal.
(3) To that end, we will not tolerate hateful or discriminatory comments of any kind.
No profane, defamatory, or violent language that is offensive will be tolerated. Content that attacks a specific group, is abusive, or is meant to seriously harass or threaten an individual may be removed from the group, as may any person who posts this type of content.
(4) It should go without saying the following types of posts are unacceptable and will not be allowed in the group:
(5) Efforts to collect private information about members without their express permission are prohibited.
(6) This group is not to be used as a means for self-promotion, including posts for businesses, subscription services, personal or organizational fundraisers, etc. Posts in violation of these guidelines will be deleted.
(7) The GUIDE App’s small groups were created for the purpose of providing community, support, and resources for your personal development journey. Posts that are political and explicitly partisan in nature do not align with that purpose. Our desire is that everyone pursuing personal growth will feel welcome in this group, regardless of their political affiliation or religious beliefs, and will feel safe to seek connection and support on their growth journey. We will remove posts that violate this guideline.
Again, welcome to your GUIDE support group – we hope your participation here will help to support and accelerate your personal growth journey.
