Imagine support groups, but totally anonymous while using technology to help build honest and heartfelt connections
What people are saying..
"Support groups just make me feel naked."
"It's not like I don't have people around me, it's just that they don't understand what I am going through."
"I don't just want to talk to someone that symptoms of anxiety, I want them to be at the same stage in life so we can relate!"
The problem with current support groups..
Generation Z has grown up behind screens where they can choose how to present themselves behind a curtain of comfortable anonymity. This has made it difficult for them to be comfortable with vulnerability, especially in person. Furthermore, individuals who experience depression and anxiety are even less likely to seek in-person support. In the past, therapy was often coupled with support groups. However, 100% of the 200 people we interviewed deeply resonated with the statement: “Support groups make me feel naked,” which led them to avoid seeking help.
How Honest Connections is different?
Our Honest Connections feature is a safe space allowing users to connect without revealing their identities. Users are connected based on similar mental health backgrounds and can find their matches in two ways. Firstly, our AI, Emely, can recommend a connection by finding similarities in recent journal entries. Secondly, users can fill out a questionnaire and can be paired up with someone who has similar responses. Best of all, we let you set the boundaries and rules while our role remains to make things as comfortable, safe and as productive as possible. In future versions of Honest Connections, we are rolling out a creative map with virtual homes for folks to connect with empathy!
