Description

As humans, we’re hardwired for connection. Belonging to a community makes us feel safe and helps us thrive.

But so often, living with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) can make you feel physically and emotionally isolated. Not only can it be hard to do things you loved before your diagnosis, but it can also feel like no one understands what it’s like.

Until now.

Our mission is to cultivate a space powered by the IBD community and empowered by each other. From one-to-one chats to conversation forums, we make connecting easy. This is a safe place to find and receive advice, to seek and offer support, and to discover the authentic stories of members, just like you.

Bezzy IBD is a free online platform bringing new meaning to the word “community.”

Our aim is to create an experience where:
- everyone feels seen, valued, and understood
- everyone’s story matters
- shared vulnerability is the name of the game

Bezzy IBD is a place where you are more than your IBD. It’s a place where, finally, you belong.

HOW IT WORKS

Social-first Content
Like all of your favorite social networks, we’ve designed an activity feed to connect you with other members living with IBD. We pride ourselves on making Bezzy IBD a safe and secure space where you can join live discussions, connect one-to-one, and read the latest articles and personal stories.

Live Chats
Need to vent? Get advice? Share what’s on your mind? Hop into a daily live chat to join the conversation. They’re often led by our amazing Community Guide, but you can also expect to chat with other advocates and experts, too.

Forums
From treatments to symptoms to daily living, IBD changes everything. Whatever you're feeling on any given day, there's a forum where you can connect and share directly with others.

1:1 Messaging
Let us connect you with a new member from our community every day. We’ll recommend members to you based on your treatment plan, lifestyle interests, and needs. Browse member profiles and request to connect with anyone from our community with members listed as “Online Now.”

Discover Articles and Stories
We believe that shared experiences empower the kind of belonging that can help people not only survive—but thrive—with IBD. Our stories offer perspectives and tips from people who know what it’s like.
Get handpicked wellness and member stories delivered to you each week.

Connect Safely Anytime, Anywhere
We take thoughtful steps to build safety, security, and privacy into our platform and foster an environment where members feel safe sharing their personal experiences. Check and send messages, see who’s online, and get notified when a new message comes in—so you’ll never miss a thing.

Unique app for IBD!

I’ve had Crohn’s for over a decade and have never seen an app or any product like IBD Healthline before. I love that it is a private and safe place to ask others who have gone through the same situations I have for their opinions and advice. Whether I just want to connect with people my age or ask a specific question, I can do it all in the app. I’m really proud to be a part of the IBD Healthline community!

Beyond Helpful

This app has everything I needed in a support group that got me through my tough times. I truly believe the support I got on IBD Healthline played a role in my recovery. It is nice to be able to ask and answer questions and talk with others about their experience. People that can relate! I would recommend this app to anyone struggling with IBD.
