Watch this video featuring David Titeu, founder of Linkmate, as he explains the philosophy behind the app and how it works.
Who we are
Linkmate is an award-winning social enterprise devoted to proactive emotional support, empowering individuals to safely share their emotional challenges and find social connection.
We help organisations improve staff and student wellbeing through a preventative digital solution and emotional resilience workshops, both designed to help individuals feel less lonely and more comfortable reaching out for help.
We believe everyone is so much more than their struggles and we all should have a mate to turn to in times of need
Pilot research project conducted in conjunction with RMIT University

What our members say...
What would you like to know?
Mates are people with a passion for helping others and inspiring them with their own story of recovery. They are trained in evidence-based practices from around the world, including peer support, active-empathetic listening and social navigation.
Complete the training course successfully, pass a police check and meet with us for a quick chat. You’ll then receive a Linkmate Certificate and be ready to chat with a member right away.
Linkmate creates a safe environment where you can chat about anything and everything. Mates are available to chat about relationships, family, eating, work, loneliness and anything else you may be concerned about. You can use the app to get whatever it is off your chest right away.
Not at all. You can use an alias or a nickname to preserve anonymity. If you sign up with your full name, only your first name will ever be visible to the Mate you connect with.
You must be 18 years of age or over to use Linkmate.
