Why we exist? 💛

Mental health is amongst the most important issues faced by young people, yet due to high rates of stigma, many feel alone in their struggles, unable to give a voice to their experiences and disempowered to seek help.All Mental health is amongst the most important issues faced by young people, yet due to high rates of stigma, many feel alone in their struggles, unable to give a voice to their experiences and disempowered to seek help.

As a psychologist and mental health advocate, this is simply the best. Real people sharing real stories and smashing the stigma associated with mental ill-health. If you’ve ever felt you’re the only one struggling, download this app and watch a few stories and I guarantee you’ll feel less alone and more hopeful.

OurHerd is the Word

OurHerd is an invaluable resource for mental health on the go. Herd immunity may not be the answer to COVID-19, but (Our)Herd immunity is already proving its worth!

Love this. Love the fact you can share your own story as well as seeing others. And how it helps to show you are never alone and other people have gone through things as well and come out of the other side. ❤

So relevant and much needed.

Been using it for the last couple of days - find it very helpful. It’s obvious that it’s been created by people who genuinely care about mental well-being and are informed.

This is one of the few apps where I actually feel better after spending heaps of time on it! The powerful and inspiring lived experience stories that help ignite positive conversations around mental health and the ease in navigating the different features makes this a 5 star app all around.
