Girl creates app to help preventing suicide

Shared by JoanaSaraiva on 2019-08-31 19:02

About the solution

After Aline Bezzoco’s friend tried to commit suicide, she heard prejudiced comments from other people about what happened.

This inspired her to create a mobile app, called ‘Tá Tudo Bem?’, with the intention of helping in the prevention of suicide. With the help of a psychologist, Wanessa Lisbôa, she developed an app that both informs and guides the user.

Some of the app’s functionalities are also based on experiences Aline has had herself. For example, one of the exercises includes listing all good things that happened with the user.

The app contains information about suicide and an emergency button. The emergency button has the option ‘I need to talk to someone’ and ‘I need help’. The first option is a text written by the psychologist with a button at the end to call CVV (a Brazilian hotline for suicide). Using the second option either the CVV or a selected person of trust is automatically called.

Other functionalities of the app are tools for meditation, texts and myths about suicide and daily messages for emotional support.

The app is available on Google Play for free.
