Togetherall provides a safe and supportive digital community which is available to our members 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Within the community, people can anonymously share feelings, thoughts, emotions, and experiences in a confidential safe space for improved mental health.
The platform supports the mental health of individuals from across a wide spectrum of need, from those with occasional low mood to individuals with diagnosed mental and physical health conditions. With increasing volumes of referrals to mental health services, more people are waiting for treatment. Togetherall’s vibrant community of peers can provide these individuals the help and support to bridge the gap whilst waiting to be seen. The online peer support community is moderated round-the-clock by trained mental health professionals and led by an on-duty clinical team, with robust risk practices and protocols in place to support members should they be in crisis.
Moderators are all licensed and registered Mental Health professionals and oversee the platform to keep it safe and free of bullying, inclusive and non-judgmental. They identify individuals showing signs of distress and work with them to de-escalate the situation and if necessary, arrange additional or emergency support.
