Research We Fund

We partner with researchers in Canada to conduct peer-reviewed studies. Our Self-Love Journal is the first of its kind to receive a government research grant in partnership with the University of British Columbia.

We believe that by undergoing the research process we can better understand the impact of our products, and improve on them.

“A product that, as a therapist, I personally use and recommend for my clients. It’s backed by research and is filled with useful tools for mental health.”
