Selfsea is a web-based platform geared towards young adults in diverse or marginalized groups. The platform provides support, resources, and stories in an inclusive community of peers. Content topics include immigration/undocumented experiences, addiction, LGBTQ+, mental and sexual health, and more. The resource library for each of these categories contains options such as worksheets, videos, interactive games, website, crisis text lines, and other topic-specific resources. Users can either: (1) browse any topic that is relevant or interesting to them, or (2) receive a set of personalized resources (including a video from a young person with similar background and experience) by providing information about their identity, background, and areas they may need support with.
