Sign up for Buddy Project to receive a buddy that has the same interest as you. Buddy Project is open to anyone 13 years or older who want a friend (you do not need to be going through any type of mental illness to sign up).

Buddies are not automatically paired, you will receive an email when you are paired. There is no deadline to sign up as we update buddies on a rolling basis.

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.



You must have a Twitter or Instagram account in order to sign up. You will be contacting your buddy through either site once you’re paired.

We are currently working on an app that will make buddy pairing automatic and more efficient. This app will allow anyone to sign up, regardless of which social media accounts they have.
