2014, You Knocked Our Socks Off

By Jessica

This is a guest post by the TalkLife team. It was originally published on their blog on 2 January 2015. 

Wow. What a crazy year it has been! Looking back on 2014 it is hard to know where to start, but here are just some of the highlights.

– TalkLife was used 10 million times, with 1 million posts and 2.5 million comments – that’s a lot of people giving and getting help!
– We’re the number one app dedicated to mental health, and in the top 100 social networks in 30 countries!
– We added four new team members – Ed (wellbeing), Hussan (moderation), The Fox (growth) and Evon (growth/communications).
– 13 mental health researchers from Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology started work on TalkLife
– 45 volunteers supported our community
– And we successfully set up our London HQ, after spending three months with Bethnal Green Ventures

What is craziest, though, is the fact that we are only getting started. We have great plans to make TalkLife even more awesome. We’re kicking 2015 off with some bumper updates, and that’s just the start …

So, thank you for your ongoing, incredible support of TalkLife community. We can’t wait for what’s ahead!

Jamie, Jacob and Andrew
