Available for iOS and Android, NeuraBoot provides users a safe space to communicate their mental and emotional struggles to family and friends.
BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, UNITED STATES, October 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Do you know how common anxiety disorders are in the United States? According to statistics, it affects 40 million adults across the country, 18 years old and older.
While a normal human emotion, sadness could be a sign of depression–which is not only known to affect work, home, and social lives profoundly, it’s also the leading cause of disability worldwide.
The topic of moods and emotional wellness is more visible than ever. So why do so few people get receive the support they need?
This was the same question that Susanne Moore and her daughter Alex asked and wanted to do something to resolve.
“Over the last few years, I have learned that many who are close to me often struggled with sadness, anxiousness, or anger, which has been incapacitating for them. Often, they struggled silently and didn’t say anything until after the fact. I wished I had known, so I could’ve helped,” commented Moore.
It’s a sentiment shared by many. For Moore, it also created an opportunity to advocate for genuine support, especially because emotional wellness’s challenges and stigma greatly impacted her life.
As a mother and registered nurse, it proved difficult to support her teenage daughter experiencing anxiety and sadness. Although therapy and medications are proven to work, many individuals, especially teenagers, may initially be resistant to help. Over the years, Susanne learned from her daughter the best ways she could truly help, and from those lessons, the app NeuraBoot was born.
“None of us should ever have to assume that our loved ones will have the energy and courage to ask us for help in their time of greatest need. We, on the other hand, have every opportunity to help by making it easier for people we love to reach out to us when they need it most,” Moore added.
NeuraBoot embraces this vision. The platform, easily downloadable on both iOS and Android, provides users a safe space to communicate their mental and emotional struggles to family and friends to become more aware of needs that they can then support.

It breaks the ice and opens the door of communication when often it is far too hard for the sufferer to do so on their own.
Key features inside the app supply prompt, actionable steps that provide emotional support suggestions for users. For example, a mood tracker lets you log moods. A relationship-building and intimacy development feature makes it easy to connect with your support system.

“[…] I moved out of my country to a new country.
