The MeeToo app is an anonymous and confidential online forum designed for individuals to connect with others by posting their questions, venting their thoughts, giving advice, and seeking advice. MeeToo uses human moderators to monitor posts on the forum. If an individual were to post something indicating a potential crisis, their in-house counselling team will reach out to the individual. There are also undergraduate students working as Super Peers to provide appropriate responses for other students. An in-app directory provides immediate access to 24/7 crisis support services, recommendations for resources to help users manage their mental health, third party support services, and specialist helplines. Users are also able to personalize their directories by adding portals from their respective schools, universities, employers and other groups that they are connected to. Lastly, the app regularly updates the Portals to promote events, new services or to recruit volunteers or participants for a specific project.

Research on this App

A recent study used mixed-methods (quantitative and qualitative data collection) to understand what young people thought of MeeToo, how and when young people used MeeToo, young people’s experiences of using MeeToo, and the impact of MeeToo on young people’s connections to others and on their well-being. n= 10 young users were interviewed, with their interviews being analyzed to identify themes. Then, app activity data and experience/outcome questionnaire data were analyzed from n= 398 young people in a cross-sectional sample and n = 559 in a longitudinal sample. It was found that overall young people had a positive experience in the app, and an increase in help-seeking behaviors.
