"Suicide is painless... you can take or leave it" as the lyrics go, but the reality is so many can't leave it, and they do take their lives.

Including friends, family, famous people and possibly even yourself, so many have considered or tried it - I myself am a survivor myself, but it wasn’t until my friend succeeded in taking their life that I decided it's time we did something about it.

Meet Akimbo, an app I am working on, based on the methods I successfully used to save myself and then scientifically worked out how and why it worked, hence pulling it all together in this app.
For the price of a cup of coffee each month, or more, will help fund the completion and operation of the app.

So... I hope you'll help me, help someone else change their life...

What problem is it solving?
One in every five people suffers from poor mental health to varying degrees. Stress and anxiety affect our ability to live life to the full. Left unchecked, our mental health can fall into a debilitating illness such as depression, and it can even lead to suicide.

As you know, there's a myriad of wellness apps out there but they generally take focused time and energy to get much out of them. And for many, they are simply seen as too fluffy or 'alternative' for them.

When I was depressed, I simply couldn't find benefit in things like meditation apps, mindfulness or yoga. I needed something different, something that shifted my subconscious thoughts and feelings with little effort. I found that something and it's at the core of Akimbo.

So what is Akimbo? What's different about it?
Akimbo is an easy to use app that plays down-to-earth, non-fluffy and highly impactful vocal messages to a backdrop of emotive music and sounds. Every time you listen you'll get a unique playlist that is tailored to your personal situation and preferences. Each session is focussed on delivering the underlying messages that retrain your brain to shift away from negative thinking and focus more on the present and a life worth living.

Unlike other wellness apps that require you to make time and focus on the task, Akimbo requires very little effort and you can use it anytime and anywhere. This is because Akimbo does not require active listening or focus. You can use Akimbo while you're having a lie-down, while you working, even while your driving! 

Why Does Akimbo Need Patreons?
I need your help to bring Akimbo to life and reach as many people as I can. Your patronage will help cover the costs of developing the app, testing, ongoing updates, content creation, promotion and so on.

Having donations from people like you will enable me to get Akimbo off the ground and into the hands of potentially millions of people around the world. This is your opportunity to get involved with something that can have a significant and meaningful impact.

How Patreon Works
Unlike a Kickstarter campaign (where you donate a larger amount of money to one big project), Patreon is ongoing. It's easy to sign up. You just pick a donation level: $1, $5, $10, etc, to be charged every month to support the development and distribution of this app.
You can stop your Patreon subscriptions at any time.

Rewards
See below for the rewards I've set for pledging your support. It's a huge deal for me to ask for help and I’d be incredibly humbled if you can support me any way you can.

Thank you so much!
