A discrete, innovative, emergency app based solution for teenagers under distress any time anywhere
Teens and young people find themselves in distress due to consumption of alcohol, drug use and sexual assault at social .events and nature parties
In such instances of distress, young people often avoid turning to their parents or official services out of embarrassment and fear of exposure.
When teens find themselves in a situation that makes them feel like there is no way out, they try to deal with it themselves unsuccessfully - We believe that there is a way out and in collaboration with our youth partners according, to their needs and in keeping their privacy, we have created the Chill initiative.
Chill aims to give first response on the ground and in real time once a call is being initiated through the app. The service is provided by a pair of Chillers (trained young people 21 - 28) who are not linked to a formal authority that will help the teens to deal with the situation. If needed they will get the official help services involved if necessary.
Chill aims to create a nationwide safety net for the youth. Chill provides one more alternative for the teens to get support and it is not a substitute to emergence or and medical services
Chill app was developed by “NowForce”
