Everybody who has to stay at home because of a corona virus lockdown may run into a mental crisis. People who already had to cope with a mental crisis before the pandemic, can not go to all psychological treatments or support groups.

Other people do not face a mental crisis but feel lonely and isolated or just do not know what to do.

What it does

We want to connect people that are in psychological trouble (fears, depression, etc) with helping volunteers "open ears" that are experienced or specially educated for these topics. On the other hand we want to connect people that are lonely or bored with other people with similar interests. We started the project at the #WirVsVirus Hackathon ( which means we-vs-virus in german ) We developed the idea, but we we are at the very beginning of the development.
