What made you get into mental health as a field for a startup?

Drishti Gupta @drishtigupt...

Hi Anon, the idea was to create a safe non-judgmental space online where people can come and talk about their issues and struggles. We realised that even after being surrounded by 100s of people, most of us end up feeling lonely - so we wanted to create a place where people could come and feel a sense of belongingness🌱

How do you manage your mental health with everything in your life including family, work, studies, all other relationship and some other personal things?

EUPHORIA 🌈 @meveena

Priorities things do those things which are most important & needy to you on that time.

Hi Anon, thanks for your question!

- I take an off on Sundays
- From time to time, I detach from work and spend time with the close people in my life
- I go out for drives alone, helps me clear my mind
- I like going for walks and that helps me have peace of mind
- I meditate (sometimes, not regularly)

Did any one opposed you when you thought of this start-up?
When did you felt that there should be something like now and me?
And what made or what incident made you to start this?

Profile picture for Now&Me member @drishtigupta

Drishti Gupta @drishtigupt...

- Yes, many people doubted the viability of the startup and didn’t understand the concept. However, had full support from family and close friends which made it easier to keep going on :)

- Back in college, 2019

- Realising that everyone shares their success stories on social media and there wasn’t any space where people could openly talk about their failures and struggles in life

Yeah true on all the social media platform everyone including myself just show the person who we are not and over here everyone seems to be real

@dlsr

How should I work in order to de-attach my thoughts about me attaching my self worth with my performance at school?

Also, would you be looking forward to a job and doing it 24/7 or work a steady 9-5 with a hobby you are passionate about?

Dhruv @dhruv10

1. How effective has been this community to the people? Put simply, how many active users said that they would be sad if you close the platform the next day?

2. Do you think that you understand the mental-health space well enough? Do you think you will be able to create a product (apart from a fantastic helping community) that solves for mental health in some form in the next one/two years?

3. What are the top 3 current company struggles?

4. Are you in a good mental health state right now? Do you use the platform yourselves?

5. Have any of you gone to therapy?

It’s okay if you don’t want to discuss something publically. Sorry for hurting you! I was just curious.

Aalind @aalind96

Great questions! Really curious to see them answered…
1 more question to add though…
How are you keeping this venture afloat? Really appreciate you for not bombing this app with ads but am curious regarding the system that is keeping this app afloat…
I have a vague idea how you might be trying to do that without ads… but hope that in the long run it develops into a self sufficient kind of a system…

Drishti Gupta @drishtigupt...

1. Yes, many active users have reached out to us and have mentioned that Now&Me has saved their lives and how they wish they knew about our existence sooner.
2. Learning and evolving every single day. Yes - working towards that and trying our best to do so.
3. Finding the right people to join the team
4. Every day is different, we all have our highs and lows. Maybe, maybe not 👀
5. Yes I have
