Preventing crisis: new mental health platform JAAQ launches.

A free to use online service has launched offering advice on mental health conditions from leading health experts and those with personal experience. Just Ask A Question – or Jaaq for short – brings users face to face with those who can provide answers, in a virtual chat room setting.

The not-for-profit site covers everything from psychosis to body dysmorphia and depression and features candid answers from well known faces including the actor David Harewood and Alistair Campbell, both who’ve dealt with their own mental health battles. 

 After suffering with body dysmorphia himself, Danny Gray founded the platform after noticing the gap in solutions for those suffering with mental health issues given that current support services are not sufficient in many cases. Data has even shown that about 20% of young people with mental ill health wait more than six months to receive care from a specialist and often this is too long when they are at crisis point.
