AT A TIME
Sign up for Buddy Project to receive a buddy that has 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 for a buddy.
Buddies are not automatically paired, you will receive an email when you are paired. We update buddies on a rolling basis, there is no deadline to sign up. Please put your interests in order of which you like the most (first choice would be your top choice). You are not required to select a sexuality, gender, ethnicity, or religion interest unless you want to be paired based on it. If we are unable to find someone with the same interests as you, you will be paired solely based on age. You are welcome to sign up more than once.
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 a friend and 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.
