England’s Chris Kirkland and Temptr CEO Jack Knowles Launch ‘YAPA’
Temptr Founder and CEO Jack Knowles is set to launch a new mental health app this winter.
YAPA stands for You Are Perfect Always and will be a social networking app for people with mental health issues to get help. It will give them a space to connect and talk with other users who are in a similar situation.
It’s estimated that over 615 million people are suffering with depression and anxiety worldwide, a figure that is increasing all the time.
Knowles said: “The support has been amazing, from musicians to sportspeople to reality stars, YAPA really is going to be special. There will be verified bluetick profiles for well-known personalities too and we know of a lot that are joining. The app will be cool and very social, everyone will want to be a part of it.”
