About if me

if-me.org is a community for mental health experiences that encourages people to share their personal stories with trusted allies. Trusted allies are the people we interact with on a daily basis, including friends, family members, co-workers, teachers, and mental health workers.

We care about marginalized communities that have little or no access to mental health education, resources, and services - including refugee and immigrant communities, ESL communities, and communities of colour.

As a free, not-for-profit open source project organized by underrepresented people in technology, every dollar counts in sustaining and scaling out our software and organization. We truly believe mental health needs to be open in order to improve lives. Mental health education, resources, and services need to be accessible to as many communities as possible.

Donating helps us to:
  • Reach out to more communities lacking mental health education, including minority, immigrant, and English as a Second Language (ESL) communities. We've translated our site to many languages including Spanish, Chinese, and Hindi.
  • Engineering costs including hosting and server expenses
  • Compensate our writers who invest a lot of emotional labour in our blog
  • Additional costs of maintaining a welcoming and inclusive contributor community

Breaking down stigmas is any community starts with one person opening up. You can read about our founder Julia Nguyen's journey and motivations in starting the project here. We launched a blog this year - we hope to continue sharing incredible and inspiring stories from our community.

We are always looking for new contributors! You can follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook @ifmeorg.
