The Cara community is all about letting anyone unmask and express themselves anonymously and freely, with no stigma. The first step is to have a conversation. The users can connect and chat anonymously with the Cara community of Mental Health warriors, Healthcare professionals and Empathy MVPs, anytime, anywhere. A user can be both a counsellor/friend and a patient. The motive of the app is to create awareness among people about mental illness and help the people in need anonymously. The app tries to inspire the users by showing them quotes of bravery and courage. They can also inspire other users by sharing their own stories.
The client felt that a lot of people struggling with mental illness did not get the help and support they needed. The patients either did not want to share their condition with others in fear of getting tagged as retarded or because they thought that no one would understand them. To encourage the people to speak up about their illness and problems the client decided to create this app. The second app is for the users who have suffered from such illness and help and empathize with the other users going through the same problems.
The Cara Unmask app is for people who want to express themselves freely and anonymously about their mental condition or any other problem they are facing. The app does not ask the users to sign up or login with any kind of credentials so that they can be anonymous and be sure of their details not getting disclosed to anyone else. They can let the app know about how they are feeling or what is the problem they are facing via interactive questions and the app will help them to find a friend who has experience in handling patients with such illness. The patient can initiate a chat with a counsellor suggested to him by the app or can choose one from the list of all the available counsellors.
