Supportive

How can we help people with mental health struggles create spaces to talk?

Overview

In early 2018, Nina and I were needfinding in the space of communication and mental health — particularly for college-aged Americans.

We spoke to experts. We tested numerous prototypes. We whiteboarded and journaled and sought feedback constantly.

After six months of work, we created Supportive. It’s a guided conversation tool to build relationships. The tool facilitates creating spaces to talk, learning how to listen, and hearing from experts.

Supportive launched to over a thousand daily active users.
