Top 5 Mental Health Apps To Get You Through The Holiday Season
Wisdo aims to provide a peer support network for users to connect with others who have shared experiences. Users can select from three main topic areas; ‘Self Growth’, ‘Mental Health’, and ‘Identity’, and a variety of subtopics. Once a user selects their subtopic, they can then choose if they have “been there” and can support others, or are “there now” and need support. Users can connect and build a support network with each other and also message each other privately. There are also “live” weekly coaching sessions from certified individuals.
