Sign up to be in a Buddy Project group chat and meet others who have the same interest as you. Buddy Project pairs people as buddies and is open to anyone 13 years or older – regardless of one's mental health, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion, and socioeconomic status – because no one deserves to feel alone. This is for anyone who just wants a friend, you do not need to be going through any type of mental illness to sign up to be in a buddy group chat.
Buddy groups are not automatically created, they will be created on a rolling basis. You are welcome to sign up to be in more than one buddy group chat.
Note: This program is NOT an alternative to therapy, counseling, or crisis service. It's like pen pals and is made to connect users with friends and a positive peer support system. If you believe that you have a mental disorder and are not diagnosed, go see a mental health professional. If you or someone you know is in crisis, please check out our page of international hotlines.
