Need It Most 

Accessible, Efficient, and Anonymous 

The Problem

Suicide ranks as the 2nd most common cause of death among teens in the United States of America.
Nearly 20% of high school students report serious thoughts of suicide and 9% have made an attempt to take their lives

Near 75% of students who struggle with depression and anxiety are reluctant to reach out for help

An estimated 49.5% of adolescents have had a mental health disorder at some point in their lives.

Our Services

After opening our app students will be given 2 options; get anonymous help or become a helper.

Therapy Session

Get Anonymous Help

We aim to support teenagers struggling with mental health issues who find it very difficult to open up about the problems that they are facing. That is why we created our feature allowing students to chat anonymously with a trained helper, who has struggled with a similar mental health issue. Speaking to someone about your problems is proven to increase mental wellness, which in combination with the advice that can be given by the tranied helpers, is a recipe for improvment.

Become A Helper

Helping other people is clinically proven to be beneficial for people struggling with their own mental health issues. That is why when people who are struggling with mental health either feel better some days or have recently completed their mental health struggles, they can choose to help other people on our app. These helpers will start off with a brief certification to learn the basics of supporting others. As they help more and more people, they can then learn more about how to help in better ways and “level up” to become a more qualified helper on our app, qualifying them to help people struggling with more challenging mental health issues.

Why Peer-to-Peer?

"Helping others can decrease cortisol, the stress hormone, while increasing oxytocin, related to positive social interactions and generosity." (Randi Mazzella & Marisa M. Tomasic, Ph.D.)

"Seeking support and social connection is, therefore, a critical point in the lives of people with serious mental illness, and the decision of who to reach out to may be detrimental in determining their path to successful recovery and well-being." (Perry & Pescosolido, 2015).
