Here at Cope Notes, we're in the business of changing lives. Inspiring, powerful testimonies of progress and recovery like these are the only metric we use to measure success.

P.S. We'd love to hear from you. Share your story here.

I gave away your sticker and card to a student who was self-harming. The last time I spoke with her, she told me I saved her life. So, you saved her life. You probably hear this all the time, but thank you.

I came across your video on Facebook at 3 in the morning, plagued by insomnia as usual. Earlier that day, I called a friend in tears because that insidious voice in my head telling me to kill myself popped up while doing my makeup. I have a very persuasive disease that speaks to me in my own voice. After speaking to my dear friend and watching your video, I finally mustered up enough courage to make an appointment to see a psychiatrist. July 19th at 10:30 am. Thank you with all my heart.

I've been an addict my entire life, trying to self-medicate for my anxiety and serious depression. Last year, I made it to rehab after hitting rock bottom. Man, the world is such a better place today, and I now see things much differently. I'm happy to say that mental illness will not control me anymore. I'm depressive bipolar, and I'm okay with that. I no longer think about ending my life - I wish to prolong it.

I signed up for Cope Notes the other day after a bad bipolar episode, and already the messages have done more for me than the therapists I've seen. It really has given me at least one thing to look forward to during my day. And quite literally the morning after I signed up for it, some amazing opportunities opened up in my life. Even though it's not correlated, I can't help but think that it's a sign of something good.

A couple days ago, I took a step I had honestly been putting off. Saying over and over again that I'm ok, that everything is alright, and honestly just avoiding a lot. There's no reason for me to be depressed. I have a great life, a fridge full of food, and some amazing jobs. As a child, I told myself that when all of this happened, the depression would just go away. Boy, was I wrong. My anxiety makes my hands shake, making it hard to text. I keep my hands in my pockets to avoid showing it to my family, friends, and even clients from work. But signing up for Cope Notes kinda gives me a little hope that it's something to help with the ongoing fight. Thank you.

I look forward to receiving my message every day, and every time it arrives, I open it with great anticipation. I've been putting in so much effort to change myself and my habits for the better lately, and the past two weeks have been the best I've had in a long, long time. I am finally starting to feel more comfortable with who I am, and I've been handling my issues in a way more healthy manner than I have in the past. Cope Notes definitely had an impact on me changing myself for the better, and my willingness to change myself to be a less toxic and more optimistic human being.

I did my free trial recently and it ended just a few days ago, but I just so happened to get this text earlier, right when I was sitting in my car crying after someone hurt my heart pretty badly. Most of the other messages I received came in at times when I really needed them, too. I've always struggled with feeling unimportant / not good enough, and I've been going through an especially hard time lately, but something so simple as receiving these little texts has been surprisingly helpful. So thank you, from a (soon to be) new subscriber.

The positivity you bring to the world helps brighten my days up and helps keep me reminded that mental illness doesn't have to define me, and to also chase my dreams. I'm hopefully starting my first band soon, which is something I've always wanted to do, but always repressed, because I didn't think it was something of substance. I finally found the right people to surround myself with and lately things have been looking up greatly. I just wanna say thank you.

I signed up for the trial for Cope Notes, and I absolutely love it! The couple of days I've had it have been great. I'm gonna subscribe once I get paid again. It's crazy, whatever text I get each day matches almost exactly how I'm feeling. Keep up the great work! Wish there were more positive influences like this.

Thank you for creating Cope Notes. It's been helping my boyfriend get through this really hectic time the past few months, since he doesn't have time to actually see a therapist right now.

I didn't know how much I would appreciate this kind of service until I signed up. I can feel myself light up just seeing 'Cope Notes' pop up in my notifications. This sounds too good to be true, but the science really feels like it’s working.

During a time of massive upheaval and change, Cope Notes has been awesome. They are real, heartfelt, and have helped me remember lessons that seem particularly hard to access and recall when I'm in such a dark and overwhelming place.

Even the few texts I've gotten are just such an uplifter. Which is strange because they can be as simple as why guacamole is good for you, but it's always like a reset buttons for emotions!

Heard about Cope Notes at a concert a few months ago and decided to try it out for the trial. I can honestly say that my days are so much better after Cope Notes. You guys are AWESOME!

Cope Notes is a million dollar idea. I still use some of the pictures that y'all sent me as my phone backgrounds because they still help me every day. The idea of getting random texts throughout the day is amazing. Even if it's something small, it's nice knowing that something was coming. It honestly helped me get the courage to finally go back to school to get my GED and take some bright steps into the future, and I just wanted to say thank you so much for that.

I had self-harm problems for a while, but I dropped those. Then, I'll think I'm getting better and slip right back into not eating or sleeping again. I've been feeling a lot lower than usual lately, so I signed up for the Cope Notes trial yesterday and got the first message this morning. It's an actual relevant message that put things into perspective a little more. I just wanted to let you know that you're helping me and it means a lot to know you're here for people with mental health problems. Love you.

I've struggled with mental health my whole life. I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety at 8 years old after I suffered a brain injury. And it's things like Cope Notes that would have helped me feel like I wasn't doing it alone when I was growing up. Keep up the good work, and I'll make sure to spread the word.

Today was the worst day I've had in a long, long time. I felt so worthless, and like my life is pointless. I've been so sad and angry that I haven't been able to think straight whatsoever. But I just got my Cope Notes message for the day, and that, combined with yesterday's message (one of my favorites so far) made me feel a bit better. It was one of the few times today that I felt a bit of hope, and I just really wanted you to know that Cope Notes makes a real difference in my life for the better.

Thank you for Cope Notes. I gave it a shot when I was in a really dark place, and it kept my mind and heart in check. I am finally happy with myself and with everyone around me.

I just wanna say thank you! Cope Notes has really helped me. I'm not exactly the most positive person when it comes to how I view myself, but by using Cope Notes, I recently started opening up more and looking at the bright side of situations.

Cope Notes inspires many to not lose hope in themselves, and thereby gives them the chance to find faith, find renewed strength in being who they are, and find purpose in this difficult life, even when they thought they had no purpose, that they were a mistake.

Cope Notes is sick. I was flipping out on my birthday a few days ago and this text got to me right in time. Thank you for providing such a helpful service!

I started using Cope Notes like last week, and I'm already finding myself countering bad thoughts with really positive thoughts. Especially as of late, I got dumped, but just by chance on my walk home that night, I got a text and it put a really happy smile on my face. I just wanted to say thank you for that 🙂

Trying Cope Notes has helped so much and pushed me very far. I've been in a depression slump, and slowly but surely, I am pushing myself day by day. Thank you for shedding light. Again, thank you so much.

I subscribed my daughter to Cope Notes. She's going through a super rough time with her father, who is an addict, and dealing with a tremendous amount of mental pain. Cope Notes looks like it could provide her some support, so I just wanted to reach out and say thanks.

This text came right when I needed it. All I do is overcome, and this week will not break me. I've been through worse and I made it out alive! I won't stop fighting and I will make it through every final and presentation I have this week!

Cope Notes has changed my perception of life in many ways, and for the better. Thank you for everything.

I signed up for Cope Notes late last week, and I have to say this has been the greatest thing I've experienced so far. These texts literally pop up at the perfect times and it's all at random. I suggest to everyone who struggles with their mental health to try this - you'll see that it's worth it in the end. Thank you for this <3

Seriously, I love Cope Notes. It gives me a boost every time those random texts come through. It helped me be confident for my job interview even though I was anxiety-ridden. It has helped me keep myself on track, with my mental health and personal life. Seriously, I love this. I can't say thank you enough.

I struggle every day/second/month/year with bipolar, major depression, crippling anxiety, and panic attacks. Cope Notes is a real pick-me-up. I’m very glad it exists!
