The first dedicated chatroom was made available to the general public in 1980, provided by CompuServe Simulator. Ever since, social networks have drastically improved in terms of connectivity, dependability, ease of authentication, features, and interface.
However, most platforms are general purpose-type in terms of design, offering a bit of everything without committing to particular spheres or topics.
Given that mental health is becoming more and more of an issue for millions of people on the four corners of the world, One2OneTalk decided to create a platform with special chatrooms dedicated to anxiety, breakups, bullying, depression, disabilities, domestic violence, stress, parenting, and similar issues.
The main goal of the One2OneTalk platform is to create a community whose participants would thrive and empower each other through reassurance, understanding, and healthy conversations.
According to Dr. Lisa Damour, “Psychologists have long recognized that anxiety is a normal and healthy function that alerts us to threats and helps us take measures to protect ourselves”. However, anxiety and many similar disorders are unhealthy if the person experiencing them is not guided on a healthy path.
The One2OneTalk platform is not a psychiatric service, nor is it group therapy. It’s a platform that allows people who are experiencing certain problems to meet individuals who are struggling with the same challenges and open up at their own pace.
The uniqueness of One2OneTalk can be seen in the fact that each disorder, disability, or challenge type has a dedicated chatroom, ensuring that people won’t need to search far and wide to like-minded individuals.
One2OneTalk is free to join for a limited time, although the planned subscription packages will be available at highly approachable prices. Students, teens, adults, and seniors alike are all welcome to the One2OneTalk community, regardless of whether they’ve struggled with anxiety, bullying, depression, stress, or simply want to make friends with like-minded individuals. Furthermore, the platform is completely free to the next 250 users who sign up.
The One2OneTalk app is available for download on both iOS and Google Play platforms, and more information about the company can be found on the brand’s official website.
