Soul Support Submission & Community Guidelines

Joan P. Maxwell and the Soul Support team strive to create informative, engaging, supportive communities where we can share information and have conversations, many times about tough topics.

We do our best to listen and respond candidly to the topics that are important to you, attend to your feedback, answer your questions if we can, and be transparent about sharing information and providing our perspective.

If you submit a story or question, post to one of our social media channels, or otherwise respond to or comment on one of our posts, you are agreeing to abide by these Community Guidelines. Please bear in mind that the comments and responses that you read on our channels that are not posted by us come from members of the public. The content of these comments (including opinions and statements) posted on our channels do not necessarily reflect the views of the social media site or its owner and are the responsibility of the individuals posting them.

Soul Support Community Guidelines:

Be Respectful -

First and foremost, we ask that everyone show respect for other members of our online and social media communities.

We encourage and welcome you to share your own stories, questions and comments, provided that you share your viewpoint in a way that is respectful to the topic and our community, and is not inappropriate, off-topic, abusive, harassing, or profane. We reserve the right to reject or remove comments that are not in keeping with our policy and to block or ban users/followers who violate this policy.

Medical and Professional Advice -

Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition, or mental health needs. Reliance on any information provided herein is solely at your own risk.

We May Use Your Posts, Questions & Story Submissions -

By posting on one or more of our social media channels, you understand that your posts, and any ideas or stories contained in them, may be freely used by us in any way and in any media, including on this forum, on our other websites and social media pages. In addition, when you post in any of our social media channels, your name, likeness and social media handle will be visible and associated with your post and if we re-use your post elsewhere, we may display your name, likeness and handle there as well.

Submitting Your Story or Question:

Please note that we edit submissions for length, clarity and our own editorial guidelines. For example, this might mean your title will be changed or certain language will be removed. If we feel we’ve made significant changes or altered your original tone, we’ll run it by you first. We never want to misrepresent your voice or message.

If your story is published on our site, it may be republished in full or in part on social media.

Your stories have value. While we can’t publish every story, we hope you will engage with the community, tell the story you need to tell, ask questions, and know you are heard.
