The tech bit…
The myala app encourages you to regularly check in with your feelings, your mood and other factors such as your motivation, sleep, mental focus and social interactions. Think of a myala ‘Check-in’ as a twice daily activity, just like brushing your teeth. It only takes about 30 seconds.
You can instantly view your data in easy to understand reports, charting how the factors that affect your mental health and wellbeing change over time. If you have an Apple Watch, Fitbit or Oura ring and choose to connect it to myala, your reports will also show your sleep data.
myala empowers you with your data to help you gain more emotional self-awareness.
The human bit…
Human connection is vital for good mental health. myala makes it easier to get support from others when you need it.
Get peer support
Peers.net offers mental health support from peers who get you because they share your life experiences and identity.
Send a myala signal
You can invite friends and family to be part of your support team. When you tap the myala signal button in the support section of the app, myala sends a text message to each person on your support team asking them to get in touch with you. We designed this feature with students, for students.
Support your peers.
Peer supporters use their own lived experience of mental health challenges to help others. Flourish Labs is offering free training and paid part-time peer supporter jobs for college students.
Try the myala app.
myala is freely available to any student over the age of 16 studying in the US. You just need an email address ending in .edu to sign in. As a myala user, you can refer friends and family to try myala with your referral link, even if they are not a student.
