Welcome to WPHugs
WPHugs offers an open safe space to connect & share about our mental & emotional well-being with other like-minded people in the WordPress Community. The aim is to raise the bar on our awareness of Mental Health issues and what it truly means to us as a community and to truly realize what is a balanced life.
We offer the opportunity to connect at a deeper level than just talk over a coffee and code and in a space of understanding and non-judgement.
Mental Health is extremely important yet we only have gym memberships but one for a psychologist. Lets help change the stigma.
By constantly connecting in our safe and caring environment we can build an education base from which we all could learn from.
Join our Slack Community
Become a member of our caring WPHugs WordPress Slack Community (always free, always caring).
Our slack group is a group of individuals who are caring and non-judegemental. A Place where we ask “How are you?” and care about what you say – and you can be honest. A community for the community, by the community – democratising caring. Everyone is welcome.
You do not need to contribute to the public channels, in fact, many don’t. Most importantly its a space do know you’re not alone.
