Testimonials
"It feels so good to have someone focus their full attention on me, even for just 15 minutes. I didn’t think this would really make a difference, but after I texted with a Listener, I felt refreshed and ready to face the day anew."

“I joined HearMe 5 weeks ago, and I could not have been happier. Having the consistency of someone being available on a weekly basis on my own terms has helped me build stability, and I feel way more supported than before.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Who are HearMe Listeners?

HearMe Listeners are a diverse group of volunteers from all over the world who want to be a source of support for another person. Anyone can become a Listener by signing up through the app and completing the training course. Listeners have access to a wealth of educational resources so that they have the empathy skills needed to support you.

What kinds of things can I talk about?

HearMe is a judgment-free space to discuss whatever is on your mind. We have listeners available to discuss Work & Productivity, School, Relationships, LGBTQIA and Identity, COVID-19, Parenting, Body Image and Disordered Eating—or whatever else is on your mind. We're constantly adding new topics as we get more Listeners!

Are my conversations confidential?

With HearMe, you never have to worry that your conversations will be shared. Text chats are kept anonymous, and Listeners uphold the strictest levels of confidentiality. HearMe does not disclose your identity or any personal information, except your first name and initial message, to Listeners. Listeners will never ask you to disclose your full name, address, email, social media or any other confidential information, and all of your chat data is encrypted. You can read HearMe’s full privacy policy at https://www.hearme.app/privacy-policy.

Can I chat with the same Listener more than once?

Yes, HearMe allows you to create “dedicated chats” with a Listener you enjoyed speaking with. Once invited, you will be able to go back to the same Listener time and time again, allowing you to develop a more friendly relationship.

Is HearMe therapy?

Our Listeners are skilled in providing empathy; however, they are not licensed therapists. HearMe is not a replacement for therapy, crisis hotline or for serious mental health issues that require a professional. HearMe can complement traditional therapy, providing a safe space and a trained Listener who will help you express yourself and clear your mind.
