Mental illness gig allowed?

Hello am I allowed to start a gig helping people with psychosis and anxiety? I have years of experience with psychosis and still have anxiety but have learnt how to deal with it and with my experience I believe I can help others get through it.

I don’t think it’s against any rules. For several reasons, though, if you do it I have a suggestion. Include a disclaimer stating that you are not a doctor or a mental health professional, but are offer support based on personal experience.

You may also want to make sure you have carefully read and understood the meaning of it if you use the word psychotic or psychosis. Peer support might be helpful for anxiety, but true psychosis is a very complex mental health issue.
