iDare Vision & Mission

Vision

Create a world where all people have healthier and safer relationships with themselves and with each other.

Mission

Provide an intersectional and holistic solution for abuse  

About Us

iDare is India’s first holistic and intersectional mobile application that helps people recognize, prevent, cope with, and fight against abuse. It helps cope with the trauma we survive, heal from our pains, unlearn unhealthy patterns, and learn to replace them with healthier ones. iDare prioritizes the values of kindness, empathy, and collectivity to build a safe and secure space where wellness thrives.

Legal Advisor

We have all met a legal professional, but a legal professional with a human approach/empathy is very different. I felt comfortable in discussing an all round approach with Legal Advisor. She listened to my issue completely, and offered constructive advice, confidence and courage. We discussed my apprehensions, scenerios, and I can tell you It was a very fruitful session in the end. I know I can recommend her sessions without a thought. Also, a BIG THANK YOU to IDare for their approach and help!

The resources and exercises that is suggested by my therapist has always been so helpful. It feels really good and motivated when small little wins are celebrated together and every small step taken is a progress. ♥️

Mental Health Counselling

If you are anything like me, you would be happy to know that you have a place where you can be heard. These bottled emotions need a place and a stage to be set free. In a society which is fast paced, very quick to clasify into a right or a wrong, empathy takes a backseat. I came to IDare as two aspects stood out for me. A session's affordability and the empathy of a therapist. I value iDare Counselor's experience and working with her to find a formula, a door to enhance progress.

I feel soo much better as I know whatever I’m venting is making sense to her and she can judge it and make sense of it the best.
