Buddy Project

Patient Leader

Buddy Project is a non-profit movement that aims to prevent suicide and self-harm by pairing people as buddies and raising awareness for mental health. Since April 8th, 2013, Buddy Project has been pairing teens and young adults with a buddy. We pair based on mutual interest and age. As of March 7th, 2018, over 211,000 people have signed up to be paired with a buddy. We are currently working on creating an app that will pair people as buddies based on their interests and age. Buddy Project is a 501(c)(3) organization that supports mental health and recovery centers throughout the United States.
