TBuddy was founded in 2017 as a means to mitigate suicide risks and depression by implementing continuous support due to the current attempted suicide rate among trans men being 51%. With over half of trans men attempting suicide we realized action needed to be taken immediately.
After speaking to fellow trans masculine people over the years, the common thread was that many of them felt alone and alienated from friends, family, or those who did not support the LGBTQ+ community.
After growing for several years TBuddy is a 24 hour support service where trans masculine individuals can speak to other trans masculine individuals about any concerns they may have.
TBuddy provides a solution by eliminating isolation from the equation

As a trans masculine person in this world it is imperative to have an outlet and to pay attention to your mental health. Part of taking care of your mental health is talking about your feelings. You can't hold everything in. For your 30 minute session you have a safe space to talk to you TBuddy about whatever is on your mind.
We understand some of us have days when we struggle with dysphoria and just want someone to talk to. We understand that when you've had an awesome day you want to share that news with someone.
