USA Today has recently featured Supportiv Co-Founders Pouria Mojabi and Helena Plater-Zyberk as part of 2022’s 10 tech founders set up for game-changing innovation.
In an era of unprecedented mental health struggle and suffering, Supportiv couldn’t be better-positioned to make a difference this year. The USA Today article recaps exactly how anonymous online peer support provides a stopgap for our collective mental health needs:
“Pouria Mojabi and Helena Plater-Zyberk founded Supportiv to tackle mental health crises. Supportiv is a place where people can come for digital peer-to-peer emotional support chats. ‘As mental health needs have escalated beyond the healthcare system’s capacity, Supportiv is filling the gap for hundreds of thousands,’ said Plater-Zyberk.
“Supportiv has already helped over 700,000 people through tough times. After clicking on ‘Chat Now,’ you are anonymously matched with others going through the same thing. ‘Being anonymous in a peer chat means you can open up and be understood. Your struggle dissolves in the open,’ said Mojabi.”
