I’m Eddie Wittenberg.

Today, I’d like to share the origins of Lyf Support, born from personal experiences and a heartfelt desire to make a difference. Understanding the need, my own challenges with insomnia led to a realization: the necessity for instant mental health support no matter the time of day or night.

Lyf Support’s Approach

We envisioned Lyf Support to offer empathetic, text-based support and guidance at any moment, particularly for those who find comfort in digital communication.

The Role of Text Messaging

We chose text messaging for its directness and privacy, striving to make mental health care more accessible and less intimidating.

Valuing Anonymity

Lyf Support recognizes the importance of privacy by providing the option of using a screen name. This feature enhances a sense of security and confidentiality.

Collaborative Care with Partnering Psychologists

Lyf Support isn’t just a standalone service. We forward session transcripts to non-Lyf Support psychologists who partner with us, facilitating a collaborative care approach that enhances traditional therapy methods.

A Continuous Mental Health Companion

Lyf Support aims to be more than an app; it’s a persistent ally in mental health, offering ongoing support and seamless conversation continuity.

Staying Aligned with Mental Health Advancements

Keeping up with the latest in mental health is crucial for us, ensuring that our support remains both current and effective.

A Vision Rooted in Experience

My goal with Lyf Support is to make seeking mental health support as straightforward and normal as chatting with a friend.
