BetterU is an online mental health source for college students struggling with mental illness. This app/website allows students to chat with counselors at their school outside of office hours. This helps elevate some of the stress that can be associated with sitting down with someone face to face. On the app, students have a profile where they can keep track of how they feel day-to-day, allowing them to recall their days when speaking to a counselor. BetterU is also a great source for articles and information on mental health. Along with access to counselors and primary sources, students have the ability to make emergency calls based on their level of urgency. The goal of BetterU is to not only provide students with access to their counselors at the touch of a button, but to also educate students on the importance of their mental health.
BetterU is not only an online source for mental health information, it also spreads awareness in the physical world. Each campaign or product raises awareness on participating college campuses. The idea is to make all students aware that their mental health is important and should be taken seriously. The campaign components engage students and allow them to see mental health on a much large scale, normalizing the need to take care of not only physical health, but mental health as well.
