Therapist-designed mental health programs—available on-demand so you can take care of your mental health when and where you want.

Welcome to Real
The most accessible and engaging mental wellness membership, offering care for the price of a cup of coffee a week.

We believe taking care of your mental health is an essential part of being human. Real offers on-demand, therapist-created tools and conversations alongside engaging community stories to support you along your mental wellness journey.

How does Real work?
Look, sometimes we hide parts of who we are - whether we are covering up a recurring childhood memory, how we feel when we look in the mirror, or those pangs of doubt we feel about our closest relationships. At Real, we offer a safe space to explore all of our feelings. Because every feeling counts. Open Real, when you’re nervous before a big meeting, when you’re dwelling on an argument you had weeks ago, or when you want to practice the art of saying ‘no’. Come to Real to be the realest version of you.


Approachable and digestible Sessions across a variety of topics that provide something for everyone no matter where they find themselves on their mental wellness journey. You can listen to a two minute Session, or sit and listen to longer collections for hours. Available anytime, anywhere.

Some of the many Sessions, include:
- Help! My brain won’t shut off and I can’t sleep
- What color is your anxiety? And how knowing can help
- The power of little moments of joy
- To go on the date or not to go on the date? That is the question.
- Feeling anxious? Let. It. Out.

Licensed therapists create research-based therapy tools to help you better reflect and take actionable steps to discover what best serves your mental health. Tools give you the techniques you can use in your day-to-day life to navigate whatever comes your way.

Listen and connect to stories from real people about their lived experiences that impact mental health with the ability for you to share your own, while remaining anonymous.

Anonymously join conversations with experts and therapists to learn, practice skills, and connect to the Real community.

Some glitches but overall love it

I love Real and find it very helpful to be able to digest bits and pieces whenever I want- much easier to integrate into my routine! I’ve learned a lot from using Real in ways that therapy couldn’t help me. The only issue I have is that when I try to listen to prior sessions in a pathway, the app will close out the session randomly (or when my phone screen dims after several minutes of not touching it) and bring me into the session I’m up to date with. Not a big issue but slightly annoying.

Wow - we're blushing! Thank you so much for sharing - we're honored to be a part of your mental health journey. Really sorry to hear that you've been experiencing some issues with Pathway audio. This bug should have been solved. You'll just need to update your app, close it out and reopen! Shoot us an email at if you're still encountering any trouble.

The new change ruined Real!!!

I absolutely loved Real and it stood out to me from other apps, because it had long sessions that were better than therapy, to me. All other apps had the short clips to listen to that felt like someone was just trying to temporarily make me “feel better”, rather than helping me understand and change. The old Real actually made me understand my emotions, anxiety, and how to manage them. The reflections and challenges helped me incorporate that understanding into my days and my life. Now, it sounds more like motivational speeches or hearing someone say “you can do it!”, when you are sitting there wanting to know HOW. There is no way that Real took all that valuable information, reflections, and challenges… and just trashed them. I wanted to go back and do the Communication pathway, with my boyfriend this time, and I knew it would help us work on that aspect. Now, I don’t even know where to begin to help our communication. I will unfortunately be deleting my subscription and I hope that the old Real will return.

Hi there, we truly appreciate your note and insightful feedback. We also want to apologize for any confusion you experienced with this the change. We sent out comms that we would be changing our app, but we understand how things can go to spam and we apologize for any confusion or stress here! Though we are sad to see you go, we are super grateful to learn from your experience and we are bringing your feedback into our internal convos so we can keep them in mind in our ongoing conversations. We would also like add an extra month to your remaining time to give you an opportunity to give us a try, if you'd like :) Please reach out to us at so we can get this free month added to your account.

Real is IT!!!!!

I was listening to my pathway while driving to work yesterday and Real suddenly clicked. I kept rewinding a session to think about what my therapist was telling me and then I would go back to my reflection to think about the question and I was getting MYSELF to really work through early messaging I received as a kid . . . and I thought “ok wait am I forming a relationship with my therapist or am I forming a relationship with myself?” And then it CLICKED. Of courseeeee! It seems so obvious now - I’m supposed to form a relationship with MYSELF. I’m the one living my life, I need to understand myself, I need to support myself, only I can catch myself in the moment and move myself forward. I LOVE REAL. Let’s go mental health!!!!!!! Changed my life!

Wow, this is so incredible to hear! We couldn't be more honored to play a part in your journey towards forming a relationship with yourself. Thank you SO much for sharing!
