Come On, Get Happy - The App
3 days ago
More and more apps are showing up that are geared toward mental health. One such app is called, simply, “Happy.” This simple to use app allows a user to speak with a “giver” (an emotional support individual) to discuss whatever happens to be troubling the user. In this episode, we speak with the company’s CEO, who explains how the app works, the vetting process of the givers, and plans for the future of the app. The importance of emotional support is also discussed, as are specifics on how the app works, including how a user is matched with a giver. HAPPY THE APP SHOW HIGHLIGHTS [1:46] What exactly is this app for? [6:07] How does a user get matched with a “giver”? [10:16] How important is emotional support, really?

Like listening to 2 friends discuss mental health
I love that this show is casual, relaxed conversations about tough topics surrounding mental health, psychology, and mental illness. It's entertaining and sometimes I accidentally learn something. :) Gabe is funny and Vincent lends a soothing tone. Cool Show, good hosts.
