Explain your project idea (2,000 characters)

Let's Start Phichology (https://phichology.blogspot.com ), works on the initiative named You Speak We Listen which is a platform for sharing with us, the things that are disturbing, depressing and distressing the people. We put inspirational posts to motivate people to have a positive state of mind. We believe that sharing the problems and providing a patient ear to their problems can serve a massive difference in the life of a depressed person. We already have got messages from people suffering from depression, we have been able to patiently help them.

Who are the beneficiaries? (1,000 characters)

Our beneficiaries are people in the younger and middle ages who often get depressed and have no one to listen to them.

How is your idea unique? (1,000 characters)

There are various initiatives, but there are problems with them as introvert people find it hard to communicate with people via talking, there are no options of having a textual conversation which is easy as well as hides the identity of the person, as a result, the person will feel more secure.
