Honoring Mental Health Awareness Month

Celebrating the Bonds that Boost Wellbeing

As May is Mental Health Awareness Month, we want to take a moment to recognize the incredible work our Papa Pals do every day to support the mental health and overall wellbeing of our Papa members. Here are some examples of the special bonds formed between members and Papa Pals. 

"My Papa Pals come and they talk to me, and it's wonderful. It's really nice to be able to chat with them. Really really nice."
-Rafael, Papa Member

"Lacey has become like a daughter to me. She calls me just to chat. We meet for breakfast. She asks me for advice. And her children mean the world to me. They're so happy to see me every time I visit, and that really feels good."
-Michelle, Papa Pal

"I'll be feeling down, and Andreana will call, and it just picks me up. Every day is different, but when I'm down I know I can count on her. I trust her. She's like my best friend. She's the only one I have."
-Kenneth, Papa Member

Every visit, whether it's helping with errands, sharing stories over a cup of coffee, or just lending a compassionate ear, makes an impact and chips away at the isolation and loneliness that puts individuals at increased risk for both mental and physical health issues. 

We are so grateful for the care and dedication you put into being a Papa Pal. Thank you for helping us create a world where no one has to go it alone.

Q & A

Can I bring someone with me to a visit?

To ensure the safety and privacy of our members, only the scheduled Papa Pal can attend a Papa visit. We strictly prohibit bringing guests, including friends, family members, children, or pets. Violating this policy will result in permanent deactivation from the Papa platform and you won’t be able to accept further work.

Visit our "visits" section for more guidance and tips to ensure you have a successful visit every time.
