When an app can save lives


Our guest is Amanda Johnstone, an Australian woman who has built an app to help people dealing with mental health issues. Her project took form after three close friends committed suicide and she realised technology can be used to help people in difficulty. She wishes the app she has built to help those contemplating suicide had been around earlier, as she thinks it could have saved the lives of those three friends. She says she even built it in their legacy. She tells us more about her idea, and where she's taking her company next.
