Help is only the tap of a button away.
The notOK App® takes the guesswork out of asking for help when you're feeling vulnerable. We'll notify your trusted contacts that they've been selected as your support group, so when the time comes and you need to reach out, you'll just have to open the app and press the large, red notOK® button.
HOW TO USE:
Register and confirm your email address and cellular number.
Add up to 5 trusted contacts’ (cellular phone numbers), using your native address book or manually.
Your trusted contacts will then either accept or decline the invitation. (Hey, it's a big responsibility. Go easy on them.)
Once your trusted contacts are confirmed, you're all set!
When you need to reach out for help, simply open the app and tap the large, red notOK Button.
A message along with your current GPS location will be sent to your contacts that reads: "Hey, I'm not OK! Please call, text, or come find me.”
If you do not receive a response from your trusted contacts, you have the option of contacting a local warmline or the Crisis Text Line for further support.
Update your support crew when you're feeling better by pressing the green button.

Ratings and Reviews
Ignore old reviews, this app is free
What a great idea! Other suicide prevention apps offer techniques and suggestions—those are valuable but in the moment sometimes all you need is to know is that someone cares. Then later, when you’re feeling stronger, you can explore further. One star off for the forced sign up—people should be able to explore without making a commitment.
Very helpful app! I highly recommend it.
I love this app. It has helped me through some tough times in my life. Where has this app been all my life? I wish it was here when I was in high school. I could of used it then. But, I am glad it’s here now. It has been a huge help. I highly recommend this app. I would seriously disregard all the negative reviews. The app is free and a great idea. I absolutely love it.
Not yet compatible with Apple Watch
This seems like a great app but could really benefit from Apple Watch compatibility. Since Apple Watch has both GPS and Cellular compatibility it would be a great additional benefit.
