Can I just recommend this place to random people

    When I see someone I follow but have never spoken to posting upset about needing help with bad mental health things happening to them and/or bad life shit, is it cool to send them an ask pointing them to this forum? I always want to, but haven't felt comfortable doing so because I'm not 100% clear on invitation etiquette. I follow a ton of people and almost never interact with anyone on tumblr, so these are pretty much always people who I've never spoken to and may not know much about other than the contents of their post.

    Is it okay to send them a link to the forum, or should I only do that for people who I know at least a bit more about?

    (edit: screenshots of an example person's personal posts deleted)

    I think the screenshots should probably be deleted since they're personal and you can get the same information across by paraphrasing them instead but inviting this person is a good idea. Seems like they need practical support.

    ETA: To answer the underlying question, inviting whoever you like to join is fine in all cases.

    Alright, I went ahead and deleted the screenshots. Should have trusted my gut :P

    And thank you! I thought that it would probably be okay but I get really nervous about issues of etiquette and community standards and stuff. I'll send them a link.
