  2. Safety - the whole notion of getting matched with a support peer is to feel safe in all aspects, especially emotionally.

  3. Choice and control - users and support peers have the total choice, control, power to choose whether to interact or stop. Please be considerate, especially during stressful episodes.

  4. Two-way interactions - receive, and give support to each other. We are but humans.

  5. Human connection - profound encounters foster empathy, and meaningful connections. Cherish it.
