We all have people who care for us

The OKButton app makes it easy for a person to let their loved ones know they’re ok. We all have people who care for us, but sometimes it can be difficult to reach out. The OKButton is a way of communicating with those who love us, to let them know we’re doing alright without explaining.

Contact without the contact – exactly why we developed the OK Button.

A single tap and your selected person or people are told you are OK without the hassle of conversation.

Sometimes we can feel overwhelmed by the thought of contact with family and friends when we are suffering with our mental health issues

Often when we are suffering this is the time we don’t want contact with people. However, those people who care about us worry, especially when we don’t respond to messages and calls.

Many of us have been there; we feel mean not responding but just don’t have the ability or the inclination to hold a conversation, however much we love the person.

OKApp is an app that lets you send or receive an OK status to or from your loved ones.

  1. Open the app
  2. Tap the button
  3. Your loved ones get notified that you are OK

Sometimes we do not have the mental capacity to start up a conversation, and writing “I am OK” to someone often leads to a “are you sure?”.

We encourage you to speak out – open a conversation – as much as you can.

But in times when you need to just let the world know you’re ok, then tap the button.

Let people who care about you know as little or as much as you like. Set reminders for any time, day or place* to let people – you choose – to know that you are OK.

*requires location settings to allow place notifications to work
