Elefriends is a supportive online community where you can be yourself. We all know what it’s like to struggle sometimes, but now there’s a safe place to listen, share and be heard.

Whether you're feeling good right now, or really low, it's a safe place to share experiences and listen to others.

Say hello

Shared experiences and perspectives are valuable and powerful. In this way Elefriends don't just get help, they give help too.

In the good times and the bad.

So come on in and say hello. 

About Elefriends

The Elephant in the room started out as a Facebook profile encouraging people to be open about their mental health. It quickly grew into a safe space to talk, get and give support. But as we grew we realised that Facebook wasn’t the right place for us. So in 2012 a group of the Elefriends came together online and offline to design the new space.

Elefriends is moderated daily by the Ele handler team from 10am-midnight.
