Combine engaging technology and human connection to support the mental health and emotional well-being of all teens.
No stigma, no judgment, just support. BeMe provides a safe space for teens to explore who they are and be their genuine selves by engaging with positive content, learning new skills, connecting with live coaches and having crisis support at their fingertips for the tougher moments. Safe by design, BeMe merges evidence-based clinical knowledge and input from a diverse, authentic TAB (Teen Advisory Board) to deliver experiences that fit into teen lives on their terms, how and when they want it.
BeMe offers teens carefully curated and vetted content from trusted sources as well as original, expert-informed content crafted by BeMe’s own creator network. Content is designed for anything life brings, addressing specific teen-centric challenges and feel-good techniques grounded in the science of happiness.
Teens are motivated and empowered through foundational, clinically-informed, tailored resources ranging from self-guided activities to trackers to self-assessments and interactive modules that transform teens through trust and healthy habits – building strength and boosting mood along the way.
Skills-based live coaching helps teens not just endure but flourish. BeMe’s coaching pathways are delivered via synchronous and asynchronous text-based sessions based on selected topic areas and identified personal goals.
BeMe delivers the right intervention when needed with highly trained clinicians who provide real-time support and evidence-based, virtual care to teens. BeMe’s developmentally appropriate care is delivered by clinicians with expertise specifically in child and adolescent services and is measurement-based at every step with validated assessment tools and quality assurance measures.
Centered on rethinking what teens need, BeMe’s engaging and inclusive mobile platform provides a fun, safe, familiar modality and inspires new-to-the-world support for youth and their communities.
It’s about quality, not quantity. BeMe isn’t intended to be addictive for teens but instead to delight, inspire and transform through discrete, time-limited, positive interactions and exchanges.
Personalized and fresh, authentic and non-judgmental, BeMe is driven by machine learning and gets better every day with usage. Just like the teens who use it.
Clinical, evidence-based, scientific principles are at the core of everything we do, from the fundamental building blocks behind the content to the skills behind self-care activities and coaching. It’s the only way to improve teen emotional experiences and promote long-term thriving.
BeMe recognizes that sometimes life gets tough and intense emotions can hit teens hard at the most unexpected times. That’s why the platform offers multiple, fully integrated crisis support options and developmentally appropriate safety planning — not just a hotline number. Because no teen should worry alone, or feel like they’ll fall without something to catch them.
