What is TalkLife?
We understand Life can be incredibly tough. It can suck, it can feel lonely, and let’s admit it: that’s tough to say out loud. We all know that, and maybe, sometimes, we’ve just been made to feel a little afraid to say it. If you’re wondering how to deal with loneliness, TalkLife is here for you. We’re here for everyone and anyone who just needs someone to talk to. Who just needs someone to listen. Because, hey, we all do.
We build global peer support communities that offer safe and engaging places for people to get mental health support anytime and anywhere.
We started TalkLife in 2013 with the aim of making sure that no one need battle with their mental health alone. It’s not easy to reach out for help when you’re struggling and long waiting times, high costs and stigma make it harder still. We wanted to create a place for people to instantly see that they weren’t alone and connect with other like-minded people across the globe who could help them through both the ups and downs of life.
TalkLife is home to a global team of passionate clinicians, engineers, researchers and designers. Together we build intelligent peer support platforms that combine the power of machine learning with social connection. Together with researchers at Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Microsoft Research we have developed unique classifiers to better understand and predict self-harm. Our world first platforms use this machine learning and human in the loop computing to be able to offer users assistance and services, specific to their individual circumstances, in real time.
