Welcome. We invite you to open the door to a place where you are not alone, a place to find connection and support in a way that feels comfortable to YOU. Whether you are asking questions our of helper bot, Kristi, or joining our Chats interactive online community of peers, there’s a place for you here. Share your stories and experiences, or read what others write. We can’t wait to meet you. We are in this together!
First of all, we are all HUMAN!
We share the challenges of dealing with emotional pain, disappointment, and loneliness. How often have you told yourself “I have no one to talk to.” Or maybe “No one is listening to me.” How about “I can’t share my thoughts with my friends; they will never understand.” If you’re like most of us, you’ve had these painful, negative thoughts- most likely many times. And guess what?
You are one of us, and we care! Every app user is a valuable member of our online community, and is truly not alone on their emotional journey. In fact, we at NOTALONE are with them every step of the way, as guides, mentors, and supporters.
Both peer and expert advice is available, and ultimately, each and every NOTALONE app user takes a proactive role in shaping his/her unique path to happiness and authentic sense of connection.
In 2011, during a YPO/Harvard program at the age of 14, Kristina came up with the idea to build a global platform to help teenagers with the issues they face. She tried to give love and support to the people around her. Unfortunately, in 2017, Kristina Belyakova passed away. Even a life as short as hers was not too short to change the world. Following in her footsteps, NOTALONE named its virtual friend in her honor.
These pre-set responses are based on twenty years of established clinical psychology experience. This means they come from highest standard work and findings of respected professionals in the field. Here, users find helpful, effective answers to the most frequently asked questions relating to issues involving emotional pain and social isolation. Writing personal stories in reaction to these answers ensures that the NOTALONE user will get the most from these pre-set responses.
These are audio self-recordings that document the NOTALONE app user’s emotional state in real time! This feature works much the way a written diary does, in terms of tracking experiences and personal growth, and will ultimately provide a valuable roadmap addressed to “The Future-Me”.
NOTALONE app users can write their own stories to share, or read stories written by others who have coped with/are coping with emotional pain and loneliness. These shared narratives let app users know that they are truly not alone, and will also highlight different strategies for dealing with emotional pain.
Chats offer NOTALONE app users the opportunity to join an on-line group of peers who are coping with emotional challenges. These give users a chance to hear about different experiences and different social and emotional responses and approaches to handling/overcoming them. In the Chsts feature, micro-chat users can find a friend with whom to share and connect one-on-one.
Our app has a single mission: to really, truly listen and work with you interactively to find collaborative solutions to the challenges we all face as a result of emotional pain and isolation. The NOTALONE app provides the best possible way for our users to find the emotional help they seek…and need.Here’s what we want to be: a navigation tool to happiness. It’s a huge goal, but that’s why we’re here- to help. We also want to make absolutely sure that all NOTALONE app users get to a secure place where they feel stronger and more engaged than they felt before using NOTALONE. Are you ready for NOTALONE? Good! We want to show you our innovative (and, we believe, life-changing) technology.You’ve probably heard the buzz. Social media is considered by many to be a threat to forming genuine personal connections, but not so fast…NOTALONE is here to challenge that view, using technology to connect its users with a wide variety of strategies to meaningfully access an online community that will promote healthy, positive self-awareness.
