if-me.org is a community for mental health experiences that encourages people to share their personal stories with trusted allies.
Trusted allies are the people we interact with on a daily basis, including friends, family members, co-workers, teachers, and mental health workers.
Dealing with mental health is what makes us human. But for a lot of us, it's a struggle to be open about it.
Not everyone is a counsellor or therapist. The people who we interact with everyday shape our emotions and behaviour. Getting them involved in mental health treatment is the key to recovery.
We are open source because mental health should be open.
We're always looking for ideas from everyone, including mental health advocates, health professionals, software developers, translators, and user experience designers!
Please write to us and we'll connect with you! You will be invited to participate in our Slack page, our primary communication tool. Be sure to fork our repository hosted on GitHub!
