Humans Helping Humans leads the charge in empowering other non-profits and influencers to positively impact lives in their local communities that are affected by mental health. “Using our proprietary video chat technology, we’re allowing other amazing organizations to not only broaden their reach but to deepen their relationships with individuals in need. Our mission is to enable more video peer-to-peer support groups and video crisis hotlines to reduce relapse and readmission rates”, says Carrie Chitsey Wells.

Thanks to corporate donations, foundations and individual donors, Humans Helping Humans grants video chat technology to other non-profits and organizations that impact large footprints throughout the United States. We’re able to pair our donors to causes that they are passionate about, allowing them to directly measure and know where their contributions have the most impact. With 75% of mental illness starting in ages 10-24 years old, it’s critical that we use digital technology to reach this demographic in the way in which they want to communicate, a video-first calling generation.
