Great little app to get instant emotional support when you need it

Great app but it is missing features, like if you just want to talk to someone there is no way to friend someone, or private message them, so that is a very big thing and they need to add that!

This app is wonderful, I have been on plenty of support apps to give and receive and this is the first one that everyone has been so helpful.

I would rate higher than 5☆ if I could. Where people join together for genuine support (unlike social media where people might point fingers & mock you). These members on app ACTUALLY care and its refreshing. So grateful that I stumbled upon this app in playstore during my time of need! Recieving virtual hugs, support, & reassurance is nice.

Amazing find! I am so glad to have found this app. People seem to be real and very helpful in discussing problems and offering support. Very nice way of incorporating so many diseases in a single app. I didn’t expect to see so many diseases covered under one app. Good job developers.

I use reach out every day. I wake up every morning and share my positive feelings and thoughts with the world. I’ve found people who are willing to hear and support me, and even when I’m good and happy, they are there to share with me. I really like to offer my support to those passing throughout a hard moment with a chronic disease. I feel a better man helping the world.

I love this app. It’s like having someone to talk to and even though I have my own mental illnesses it also makes me feel better helping others. It take my mind off of my pain. It’s also comforting to be completely honest about your feelings and not be judged but instead you get advice from different people etc


October 24, 2017

This is a great app, such friendly people and it really does help. I’m writing this review because I have a suggestion. I think making a friends list and an option to chat one on one with someone would be wonderful. And extremely helpful


April 8, 2018

I’m not alone. No one truly understands chronic pain except others with it. This supportive environment helps connect with others.


April 7, 2018

Great app 5. I am using this app every day. It feels good to connect with other people who are going through the same struggles as I am.


April 6, 2018

Much needed help here! 5 stars. This app is so useful and helpful! I have a ton of mental health issues and I’ve been able to vent, chat and find other people that understand what I’m going through plus help others through their struggles too!

Just like a group therapy but at anytime anywhere. I love this app. It’s like having someone to talk to and even though I have my own mental illnesses it also makes me feel better helping others.

Great support. This app has great support community for chronic illness.

ReachOut creates Community. When people are struggling with their health or pain, connecting with those who feel lost, helpless, or hopeless can build hope for all.


September 11, 2017

Thank God I found this app. Now I have a bunch of people to talk to who understand me.


March 30, 2017

Love the Support. This is a wonderful supportive community, of people, who will lift your spirits. On days that are hard or I am struggling I feel supported and encouraged through others in the community. The app is easy to use, which makes it easy for me to reach out to others. I love the support from people who understand.

Great app! This app is very simple to use and offers wonderful support to people suffering from chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and mental illness or depression. I recommend it to my nursing friends for their patients. This is especially good for those who cannot travel due to their illness or those who live in an area that is more rural and has less support groups.


March 14, 2016

This is a very user friendly app. It is like having a support system on your phone to help through various health related or emotional hardships. Highly recommeded.


April 25, 2018

I am so thank you that i was introduced to ReachOut. I never thought i’d be able to be so comfortable and open and say what i’m feeling at that very moment without anybody judging me or not caring. I love that everybody is so caring and understanding and you’re NEVER ALONE. it’s someone always here to listen and talk to. Thank you so much.


July 06, 2018

It has saved my life saying whatever I need to and we are a mixed bunch of illnesses. I get the best advices and I can give back. So easy to use, none of the ridicules rules the other apps have that makes me sicker. I can also chat one on one privately. You send them an email you get a quick response. Not like other apps saying we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Please get this app and we send you love and welcome you for real.

Great community and support – This is my first support group I’ve ever really gotten involved in and to my surprise it full of kind and interesting people with all different needs and issues that rally for one another’s lives.. what a gem.. if you have pain issues.. dual diagnosis and if you just want to be there to help others.. this is the place.. I’m very new but am already recommending it to ones I know may benefit. AWESOME

It is a good place to share my feelings and thoughts, especially my mental illness, mental conditions and mental issue. As people had the same feelings and thoughts, just similar as me.
