Learn More about Buddy Project
Buddy Project was created by 17-year-old Gabby Frost in April 2013 when she was just 15. The goal of Buddy Project is to prevent suicide, self-harm, & eating disorders by pairing people as buddies based on shared interests. Buddy Project also aims to encourage those with mental illnesses to seek professional help if they have not already. Frost created Buddy Project due to knowing many people locally and online that have some type of mental illness. Frost was also inspired from singer/actress Demi Lovato.
