    Due to some of the content I have been reading on UP and on here, I feel it is necessary to advocate the following information.

    If Uber driving is a problem for you:

    Get immediate help for depression and anxiety - Beyondblue

    The beyondblue online forums (https://www.beyondblue.org.au/get-support/online-forums)
    are also a great way to connect with people online, in a safe and anonymous environment, to discuss anxiety, depression, suicide and a range of life issues. Anyone in Australia can participate in discussions, connect with others and share their experiences with our community.

    As much anxiety as uber causes. I think quite a few of the current paxs would be in need of some of those. What's to stop those crazies from getting into my car when I'm crazy enough to drive :p

    No money received so the answer is no.

    good point, as a driver we should be able to notice when a passenger isn't right but do we risk offending them and being rated down by suggested or implying that they could do with some help?
