The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown has brought about a sense of fear and anxiety for all of us. We all, more or less, have experinced the traumatic sense of anxiety and fear since the beginning of the pandemic. This pandemic has led to short term as well as long term psychosocial and mental health implications for all of us. The WHO says that every fifth Indian will be facing a mental health issue by the end of this year.
Confining into the four-wall room during the entire lockdown has a more psychological impact on our mental health. What we needed badly during the lockdown to beat the fear was someone to whom we can share our thoughts and feelings. Taking all these into the consideration, India’s first free emotional wellness social network site - JUSTBATT APP - has been launched where people can talk and give the voice to their feelings and emotions. The platform provides the option of anonymity to all its users for being comfortable in sharing their emotions. Anyone can come and talk without judgement.
The app enables people to talk and give voice to their feelings and emotions live in voice-rooms, allowing to vent out bottled-up emotions. It will be a one-stop social media support network for people wanting to share and engage in meaningful and interesting conversations. From daily motivation to fitness, music and issues with women at home, the list is exhaustive at the Just Baat. These special rooms are hosted by specialists who lead the discussion and engage people on interesting topics. The app has been designed to fill the huge gap between a regular social media network and a mental wellness platform.
“Justbaat is an effort to help and support people. Voice rooms give users the space to engage effortlessly. The pandemic has badly affected the emotional health of millions of people”, says Richha Jain Kalra, Co-founder, Justbaat.
