We're two childhood friends that found what helped our anxiety and depression was chatting to people like us. So when we got talking, we thought others might like to talk as well.
Between the two of us, we’ve experienced daily panic attacks, depression, general anxiety, lost family members to suicide, watched addiction take its toll, you name it. As we learned to cope with our mental illnesses, we became more and more open about sharing our stories.
Over time, we realized that almost everyone has either themselves or witnessed a family member experience some form of anxiety, depression or something similar. Every time we shared our story with others it was like an instant bond had been formed. After experiencing the benefits of these bonds with others, we decided to build Cherio to give others a platform where they could benefit from similar connections.
