Likeminder is an anonymous social network designed to give people a safe place to share personal thoughts and opinions that they would not wish to make public on conventional social media. The company was founded in 2013 by a team experienced in the online, financial and wellness industries.Depression costs the US economy over USD200 billion a year, yet we are increasingly reluctant to share our problems. Could there be a way to overcome this stigma and encourage people to seek support?

Building on an IBM Cloudant database, Likeminder has built a wellness-driven social network, where people can share their thoughts and opinions anonymously in a safe environment, free from scrutiny.
Users enjoy improved emotional wellbeing, society benefits from a more productive workforce, and organizations optimize their existing wellness programs through better awareness of their employee base.
