Good message

Voluntary services provided by company teams are increasing.

Now, thanks to a London startup, Brits can get support for mental health challenges using a text-message service.

Anyone experiencing anxiety, depression or suicidal thoughts can send a one-word request for help. Usually within 5 minutes, trained volunteers offer a virtual shoulder.

Sensitive questioning, reassuring answers, links to more information and the offer of further assistance help users access solutions to their challenges.

The process is monitored by experts to find out if the person is at high risk. The service can be used anonymously 24/7 and isn’t included on cell phone bills.

This app provides support for users in any location.

Hearing the sound of children laughing also improves moods.
