Can texting really alter brain chemistry?
Our brain is constantly rewiring its synapses based on what we see, hear, and imagine. The more often we think a thought, the easier it is to think, the more likely we are to think it again, and so on. Positive or negative, healthy or unhealthy, this is how habits are formed.
But contrary to popular belief, it can take more than 254 days for a new habit to become second-nature. Each text message acts as an Ecological Momentary Intervention (EMI), building new neural pathways to fight against depression, anxiety, stress, and more.
Cool! But how does it work?

Who came up with this idea anyway?
Johnny Crowder, CRPS-Y|A
Founder & CEO
As a suicide/abuse survivor, Johnny Crowder spent his formative years searching for resources to help him cope with his mental health conditions, ranging from OCD and bipolar disorder to schizophrenia.
After studying psychology at UCF and volunteering with NAMI, he wanted to combine the neuroscience principles he learned about in school with the power of peer support that changed his life in treatment.
In 2017, he began sending unsolicited psychology facts, journaling prompts, and exercises to friends via text message. The response was so positive that he opened it up to the public, and the rest is history.
Today, Crowder is a Certified Recovery Peer Specialist (CRPS-Y|A) and mental health advocate who relies on the simple strategies he shares through Cope Notes to live a happier, healthier life than ever before.
