Students come to school with much more than the capacity to learn. Their backpacks are full of challenges we can’t see. We need to normalize asking for Help.
Delivered on a highly configurable mobile platform, HELPme provides support and resources to students, families, and staff using a healing-centered interface. The HELPme app trains all school users on the importance of asking for help, recognizing asking for help as a critical life skill, and providing a safe way to practice asking for and receiving help from one’s first interaction with the school.
Each HELPme implementation comes preloaded with links to crisis helplines and resources in one easy-to-access place. Resources are configurable to meet your specific use-case and can be localized and replaced with your own resources. Resources can take the form of phone numbers, text numbers or URLs.
Connect directly to trained crisis counselors from the HELPme app. Crisis Text Line provides free, 24/7, high-quality anonymous text-based mental health support and crisis intervention volunteers to support people in their moments of need.
Students at every grade level maintain depression, stress, and anxiety is the most common barrier to learning.
