Weʼre raising £20,000 to help launch mental health app
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Let's go Mental..
So, 2018 will see the launch of Yapa.
What is Yapa? You ask. Yapa™ is a social app set to help people with their mental health. Across the App Store and GooglePlay there are thousands of physical health apps, but a minimal amount of mental health apps.
What does Yapa mean? You're asking now. Yapa stands for You Are Perfect Always. And users will post Yap's. We can't give too much away about the app itself, but it's going to be fantastic, as well as being very safe and secure for users.
"Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but is more common and also more hard to hear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden; it is easier to say 'My tooth is aching, than to say My heart is broken'." C.S. Lewis
Yapa will help people speak out. It's okay to talk. Having a healthy mind is just as important as having a healthy body.
The founders have already been interviewed by the BBC radio where the presenters praised the app heavily as well as callers-in, and has since featured in numerous press and gain supporters from celebrities to athletes and many more.
Who's behind Yapa?
Jack is Founder of dating app Temptr, used in over 60 countries. Has been finalist for 'Best App' at both the prestigious iDate Awards and UK Dating Awards.
Charlotte too is also an entrepreneur and is the Founder of an innovative water bottle company Aquatiser. Also currently a Product Manager for a technological software company.
