With personal experience living with Major Depressive Disorder and Schizophrenia, Sati App has been developed. Sati App is a mobile application that provide peer support. This way, we can train more empathetic listeners in our community to support the Mental Health Care system. According to WHO, peer support can be used as an early intervention for someone who is distressed.
Many who are stressed do not need psychological care from a Psychologist or Psychiatrist. However, by having someone listen to them, they can also reduce their stress level. This is not to say that this is always the case.
Sati App will also work as a filter system to link or provide information to those who would need proper psychological care, by providing information regarding hospitals users can go to for further assistance.
We do not ask users to share their real names with us, as we do believe in the importance of being anonymous. However, we do ask our users to share information such as their age, and gender (including LGBTQ+). This information will allow us to understand the different stress factors for each age group and gender.
