iRel8 is a mobile application that gives users an open and anonymous platform to receive mental health help, provide relevant advice to others, and relate to a larger community – all in a safe and non-identifiable way so a user’s reputation is not compromised in any way with friends, family members, or work colleagues. For less than a dollar a month, have a safe place to be heard and connect!

Remote Events...

Using video chat technologies, we bring events right into your home.

"Movies and Conversations"

Join the creators of the films for a screening event that encourages connection and conversation. We watch a short then have an audience driven discussion about it. Then we do it again!
It’s fun and powerful, and leaves everyone thinking more openly about themselves and others in their lives. We’ve teamed up with Markee to make these happen remotely during quarantine!

Panel Discussions

We’ll be bringing together people ranging from experts to amateurs, known to unknown, from all walks to discuss addiction, filmmaking, mental health and more.

Other events in development...

We’re constantly coming up with new ideas and ways to engage and develop community and connection. For example, a hare-brained thought we have (that we love!) would be an Of Substance Sobriety Stand Up Comedy Night!

Coming Soon!
