Cope Notes

Cope Notes uses daily text messages that combine peer support and positive psychology to help improve mental and emotional health.
Many mental health tools are expensive, rely on the user to initiate engagement, aren't designed to be used on a daily basis, only focus on self-reported symptoms and conditions, famously difficult to scale, and often require sensitive personal information and data from users. Not to mention that many digital health resources cannot be accessed by less-than-tech-savvy users without smartphones, data plans, or internet access; leaving 2.5 billion cellphone users in the proverbial dark.
Cope Notes creatively addresses all of these hangups, and more, to present a preventative, interventional solution to the modern mental health epidemic.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

Cope Notes is 100% anonymous and confidential, and it does not require users to download an app, create an account, update software, remember a password, fill out a profile, schedule an appointment, or even remember to engage with them regularly, making the user experience as frictionless as possible.
They can support users with or without smartphones, with or without internet access, with or without data plans, and even users outside of the United States. And because they initiate engagement on a regular basis, Cope Notes can guarantee higher engagement rates than other tools that rely on the user to initiate contact.
