Melbourne, FL – March 30, 2021 – More than $2.65M donated directly into treatment and recovery, responded to over 210k stories, and more than 3.8M miles traveled. Since 2006, To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) has dedicated every single day to bridging the gap between mental health resources and those who need them the most. Today, the organization is celebrating its 15th anniversary and taking another step towards connectivity and removing the stigma around mental health by announcing its new app: “The Hopeful.”
A daily-use app, “The Hopeful” features daily encouragements along with options to track your mood and explore how you’re feeling through journaling prompts. Users will also find regularly updated TWLOHA content, including blogs, podcasts, plus professional resources, and self-care activities. The app is available to download for free in the iTunes app store here, and will be coming soon to the Google Play app store. Android users can sign up to be notified when it’s live here.
Over the last 15 years, TWLOHA’s mission of hope and help has grown with the evolution of social media and how we communicate,” shares Co-Executive Director Lindsay Kolsch. “The Hopeful app is the next step in continuing our work of supporting people’s mental well-being and healing. Through the app, users can engage in daily self-care activities and will be reminded day-in and day-out just how important their story is and that they are not alone, no matter what they are facing.”
