Here are a few other FAQs we get a lot:

Mates are volunteers with a passion for helping others and a desire to use their own story to inspire hope. All Mates must successfully pass a training course, meet with the Linkmate team and provide evidence of a national police clearance check before providing support.

Linkmate creates a safe environment where students can chat about anything and everything. Mates are available to chat about relationships, family, eating, work, loneliness and anything else they may be concerned about. Students can use the app to get whatever it is off their chest right away.

Not at all. Students can use an alias or a nickname to preserve anonymity. If they sign up with their full name, only their first name will ever be visible to the Mate they connect with.

Students must be 18 years of age or over to use Linkmate.

Yes! Security is our top priority, and we built Linkmate from the ground up to ensure your students, Mates and chatrooms are secure. We maintain the privacy and confidentiality of all users through API-level database security measures.
