In Their Own Words
I think that Calvin Unmasked is an incredibly helpful resource to students. To just say the words and things in your mind is so helpful because you can get things off your chest. It has really helped me feel heard.” Anonymous , Student
I love listening to others and offering advice or resources to help!” Anonymous , Student
I think Unmasked is such a great idea and it could not have come at a better time.” Anonymous , Student
Because of the app, I have been able to have conversations with people that have helped them and myself... As someone who has had mild anxiety in the past, I understand how important to it is to reach out to people. Helping others during their hard times is fulfilling for me and (hopefully) helps them feel less isolated.” Anonymous , Student
I’ve been using the app since the beginning of the school year and have had many important conversations in it.” Anonymous , Student
I'm honestly really glad for this app. In the past when I am feeling really awful, I've turned to [a chat room], even though it doesn't have a great rep. This is a much safer and even kinder environment when a person isn't feeling great. Thanks Unmasked team!” Anonymous , Student
