We want people to feel safe when using our groups and forums. For that reason, we’ve developed a set of community guidelines, outlined below. These policies will help you understand what type of sharing is allowed in our private groups and communities, and what type of content may be reported to us and removed. Because of the diversity of our global community, please keep in mind that something that may be disagreeable or disturbing to you may not violate our community guidelines.

keep it respectful

Comments that are inappropriately negative, rude, or attacking will be deleted, removed, or we will ask you to revise your thoughts. Everyone is here to learn and grow, so anything violating that will be removed.

no medical advice

We have a strict ‘no medical advice’ policy in our groups. This is to protect the safety of all members and participants. Members can provide support, share personal experiences, and make suggestions, but these must not include specific advice relating to medical conditions or treatment options. 

respect confidentiality

Content gathered in our The Burnout Project Community groups cannot be collected, repackaged, and/or shared outside the group. Every member of our communities has a right to privacy and the right to feel safe that their questions, answers, and experiences remain privy to group members only.

respect confidentiality

We reserve the right to remove posts based on off-topic content or offensive content.
