Need Help With Anxiety & Depression

$165 of $10,000 goal

Created May 14, 2019

To My Global Friends,

My name is Richard from Moncton, Canada and I am taking action to help those suffering from Mental Wellness issues!  I have developed a prototype application that can help youth, families and individuals cope with their mood, anxiety and depression.  We all know that Mental Health is a major issue in the world today, especially among our youth. Nearly 1 in 5 suffer from mental illness, according to a 2013 study by the Mental Health Commission.

As a resident of Canada I've noticed that 80% of the youth through programming at the a local Non Profit hadn’t seen a mental health professional, but urgently needed to do so.  Knowing this there had to be a solution and support system put in place ASAP.

After identifying what is going on in our community, I decided to leverage my skills, knowledge, and resources, team up with Mental Health professionals to develop an application to support those suffering and more importantly control their mood, anxiety, depression, and general wellbeing.

However, the issue we are facing is that we spent all of our personal savings building the prototype and proving it works. We simply have RAN OUT OF MONEY and unable to bring this app to completion. Below you can download and use the app to see how far we got, however in order for us to finish it and make a difference we need your financial help.

All proceeds will be used to complete this app that is being worked on daily. 

Those who know me, are certain that I will be using the money towards the betterment of our global society. I have always been a Mental Health advocate. We unfortunately don’t talk about this issue as much in the public. I want to bring awareness and most importantly I want to take action and build something that will help.

I now request everyone reading this story, make the smallest donation of $1. Please help support my team, family and myself in helping people with their Mental Health get the additional support that require.

Thank you in advance from the bottom of my heart to everyone that have donated to such a great cause. Please click the donate button to contribute. If you are suffering please remember to reach out to your local hospital (emergency room), therpaists or help phone for support. 

If you're in the mental health or tech field please reach out if you would like to become one of our in-kind experts or mentorsince we are unable to pay anyone.
