Who we are

We’re passionate about peer support because we’ve seen its impact first-hand. As a mental health company, our platforms not only get used, but they also make a real, measurable change in people’s lives.
We work closely with some of the greatest minds in the field to understand how we can create impactful and relevant mental health support options for everyone, from freshmen to veterans.

We know that student mental health support is crucial. How your student population feels impacts not only their academic achievements but also their relationships and wellbeing as a whole.
We launched TalkCampus as the pandemic hit in 2020 to provide ongoing mental health support wherever students were in the world and provide a critical continuity of care across 26 languages.
TalkCampus was built with student wellbeing as a key focal point. Peer-to-peer allows young people to share, connect, and feel understood by people like them. Actually, since using the student platform:
Over 70% of users feel less isolated
79% feel more able to cope with life
82% feel more understood
With a user-friendly, affordable platform, we allow universities and colleges to support their students’ mental health in an accessible way.
We understand how important it is for university mental health support to be simultaneously impactful, safe, and engaging.
And it shows: we support over 250 institutions and millions of students across the globe, helping users with their struggles anytime, anywhere.
Supporting mental health at university shouldn’t mean you have to compromise on UX. We developed a user-centric, beautiful design with regular updates, new features, and a familiar feel to ensure our communities are spaces where young people and mature students alike want to engage.
“I feel safe here, I can speak to people who don’t know me and be real about how I feel. I was really glad I was able to gain a lot of support throughout the past few turbulent months and I'm happy to say that I got my diploma.”
We’re not just a pretty face. Our blend of safe social networking is unique, upholding the highest safety standards and best practices whilst creating a warm, welcoming environment. Our mental health platforms are professionally moderated with real-time escalation and 24/7 clinical support.
“People on the platform support me by validating my feelings, they say ‘I know what you’re feeling, I’ve felt it too, your problems are real. [...] It’s a really great platform and it feels very safe. This is my community.”
As a mental health tech startup, we developed our platforms with a strong belief that combining human expertise and technology can help us create safer communities for everyone. One of the key features of our platform is our ability to identify students at risk of suicide and hand-hold them into support in real time. Our machine-learning classifiers underpin our platforms identifying in milliseconds when someone is at risk of harm. We are at the cutting edge of online peer support working with leading researchers across the world.
“I feel like I have somewhere to run when everything becomes too much.”
Our global platform is diverse, accessible wherever your students are based, and ensures that whatever time of day they need us, there are others there waiting to support and listen. Students use our peer support platform in over 26 languages, wherever they are in the world.
“I’ve met people from different countries who have had different life experiences than me and different perspectives on life. It’s definitely had a tectonic impact on my life, and I can only be grateful for it.”
