selfsea, powered by Peer Health Exchange, provides young folks with support, resources, and stories from young adults who’ve been there. We believe self-care is community care. Our app was designed together with young people as a safe digital place where they can see themselves reflected within a supportive and inclusive community that prioritizes their identity and experiences about mental health, sexual health, and beyond.
selfsea is a digital community created inclusively with and for young people as a safe space to discuss and share knowledge on identity, mental and sexual health. Download for iOS and Android, today!
