Act on Crisis App

Our mental health is being severely challenged by the pandemic. It is thus important to have emotional support tools that are super easily accessible – like through a simple click on the app.
Lithuanian-created app AOC (Act on Crisis) was created as a response to the global health crisisAvailable for both individual and organizational use, the app offers help with internal awareness and emotional wellbeing. Not to mention 16 certified psychologists for anyone's struggles in at least three languages Lithuanian, English and Russian.

From vital breathing exercises to cope with burnout, anxiety or stress, to a full range of live community chats and private sessions with professional therapists Act on Crisis works like a all-you-need kind of mental gym for emotional health.

"Quarantine forced me to celebrate my birthday completely alone, and even though I am a psychology major, seeing the rising number of cases I experienced a panic attack. I can only imagine what other people might be going through. I believe that initiatives aimed at improving mental health are extremely important and will only become more numerous and helpful. Different people need different treatment methods, but the main thing is to pay attention to the issues surrounding our psychological wellbeing. This is the only way to create a sustainable, supporting and united society." Ieva Vaitkevičiūtė, founder of the Act on Crisis app.

And the app did hit the stars. It was awarded the second prize among 15 000 participants of the international hackathon The Global Hack.

On top of that, the app developers continue to expand their cooperation with several other organizations providing psychological support to youth and people in crisis
