Our volunteer corps is comprised of hundreds of licensed mental health practitioners who offer 15-60 minute listening and support sessions



First responders, healthcare providers, and their families


To respond to acute stress and provide spaces for frontline workers to be heard and supported 


Please note that this is not therapy, and we encourage people looking for ongoing support to find a traditional therapist

"I felt validated, and very heard during my session. I received really great advice, too. [My practitioner] was cool and calm and caring. I really enjoyed the experience. She made sure to let me know she is available by text and to update her if I want to on some of what we had talked about"

"This program was very accessible and I'm thrilled to have been a beneficiary of this! It might have saved my life"

"The conversation didn’t feel forced. [My practitioner] was easy to talk to and provided great tips along with expanding on some things I currently do"

"I really appreciated [my practitioner's] ability to relate to me. Also that it was a judgement free zone and gave me a safe space to vent. She listened and began to help me touch upon deeper issues that were surfacing"
