$25,000 to support the launch of the Promly app in the spring of 2022 that aims to address the mental health and wellness of teens and young adults.
In response to a looming mental health crisis and massive increase in teen suicides that started well before the pandemic, Promly joined with Gen Z themselves to imagine a solution that doesn’t wait for a crisis, but instead proactively “meets teens where they are at” – on their smartphones. Promly is a social enterprise that aims to unify a generation by empowering human connectedness and providing holistic support and education for GenZ in places they naturally gravitate to, both online and offline.
