    Hi everyone,

    If you're new to the forums, you'll notice that some members posting have badges.  We have a directory below so you can see what they all mean, and how you might go about obtaining one.

    We have badges for a number of reasons:

    * To identify Beyond Blue staff members, volunteers and contributors
    * To identify any health professionals who post
    * To reward and recognise members who have gone above and beyond to provide peer support for others

    Please let us know your thoughts on community badges in this thread, including ideas for new badges, any questions you may have, and any improvements we can make.

    Hi Sophie and other BB workers.

    I was just wondering how someone would get any of the badges, for example do you have to have a certain amount of posts to get the valued contributor or any of that? I'll read all of the links.

    Sorry to post here and ask, just not too sure how it all works. Thanks.
