About This Service

Happy is a mobile app that connects you over the phone to an exceptionally compassionate listener. You’ll talk to someone whose only goal is to help you feel supported and understood. You’ll receive undivided attention, compassion, and encouragement – with no judgment and no unwanted advice.

We’re available 24/7, so you can talk whenever you want and wherever you are. Over time you will build up a support network of people who help you feel better in the moments you need it most.
Happy: You talk. We listen. No judgment.

What people are saying:

In a pilot test, 93% of callers felt happier after just one call, and 86% of callers felt less anxious after just one call. Here’s an example of what callers are saying about us:

“This app ROCKS! The people who answer calls genuinely are care about you, know
how to listen deeply and let you know you’re not alone. I wasn’t sure at first how I’d feel
about pouring out my problems to a stranger but the Happy Giver made me feel safe
and connected very quickly and before I knew it I felt like I was talking to a good friend.”

“I decided to give Happy a try and be open to a different perspective. Needless to say, I
received so much more than that. I was greeted with kindness and left with knowing I
was more than okay. By speaking through various options I hadn’t considered before,
my situation felt less daunting and more like an opportunity. I thank that awesome Happy
Giver for their time and compassion, and the concept of Happy the App itself.”
