How it Works

We're on a mission to normalize talking about mental health.
Talking about mental health is hard. STIGMA makes it easier. We help you instantly find people who share your lived experience so you can view helpful content and ask for or offer messages of HOPE via asynchronous text, audio, and video message. Learn more about our community below and download our mobile app for the full STIGMA experience.
STIGMA Stories
Not ready to talk? Watch STIGMA Stories for living proof that you're not alone. If you feel inspired afterwards, you can decide to share your own story.
Previews of STIGMA Stories are available on our website. Full-length Stories are exclusively available on our mobile app.
Ask for HOPE
Having a rough day? Need someone to tell you it will be okay, or suggest tips and resources? Ask for exactly what you need, and customize who sees your request. You'll always have the choice of submitting a video, voice, or written message.
Then, receive messages of HOPE in your inbox, directly within the STIGMA app.
Offer HOPE
Feeling inspired? Being kind feels good and is proven to improve your mental health. The STIGMA app makes it easy to incorporate this practice into your daily routine, giving you a way to brighten someone's day (and yours too).

Similar to asking for HOPE, you'll be able to offer HOPE through video, audio or text.
