FRANSiS™ is for anyone who can receive a basic text message and could benefit from positive reminders and daily support and is for anyone wants an opportunity to think differently throughout their day.
How Is FRANSiS™ Anonymous and Secure?
How do we do that?
We never collect any of your identifying information. Not your name, address, or anything.
What kind of messages will FRANSiS™ send me?
FRANSiS™ will send you simple messages of positivity, compassion, encouragement, or simple coping exercises that can help in a stressful moment plus so much more.
Each message has been curated by mental health professionals with real experiences in helping people navigate trauma, anxiety, and all of the other challenges that come along with life.
Am I getting the same messages as other people who talk to FRANSiS™ ?
No. You are the only person in the world receiving your unique message from FRANSiS™ at that specific time of the day. Each and every message is uniquely delivered to you and you only.
When Will I receive messages from FRANSiS™ ?
Only FRANSiS™ knows when to send you messages.
Each and every subscriber to FRANSiS™ is sent a unique text once a day at a uniquely random time.
Why do we do this?
Our randomized text messages are designed to combat something called habituation. FRANSiS™ sends text messages because we know that you read your text messages more than any other messages that come to your phone. If you are like us, when your phone beeps, dings, or buzzes you look at it, it’s only natural. That little notification creates a natural interruption to what’s happening and draws our attention in. We use this feeling to help interrupt negative thought patterns and help you re-center on the messages we send you.
What happens when I text back?
You can text FRANSiS™ as much as YOU choose to. Once a day, 100 times a day, or not at all. Whatever your choice is, we stand behind that!
This is your safe space, so text FRANSiS™ as much as you want to.
Remember, this is completely anonymous and isn’t a real-time conversation— Let your responses serve as your confidential journal for you to speak freely without any repercussions.
Did you ever have a journal or a diary? We did, and we know that those items were sacred. FRANSiS™ treats your safe space journal the same way, we will never share, judge, or respond to any of your entries in your journal. This is a “For your eyes only” place for you to share your thoughts and feelings.
Why is this important?
Each time you text FRANSiS™ , you’re making an entry into your journal. This is called “digital journaling.”
By not expecting a reply in return you’re improving your mental well-being in 3 key areas:
- Emotional EQ (ability to understand, use, and manage your own emotions in positive ways)
- Emotional independence (the ability to regulate your emotions and still feel good about yourself even when difficult situations present themselves)
- Your self-reporting (a.k.a. your ability to identify how you feel and what might help)
Can I gift subscriptions to others?
That’s what it’s all about! You can gift subscriptions to all of your patients/clients, your growing organization, employees, team members, and so much more.
