When someone invites you to participate in HopeCheck, they want to understand how you are doing over time by monitoring your hope. Hope is a key signal of your future outlook, your mental health, and your overall well-being.
When you are invited to join, just text the word “join” to the HopeCheck number you were given. You’ll also answer a few quick questions (your name, age, etc).
After you join, you’ll start to get a text question once a week asking you to self-score your hope outlook from zero to ten. Just reply with your score. It takes about three seconds.
For minors under 18, HopeCheck will engage with you to get your parent or guardian's consent before you can participate.
HopeCheck asks about your self-scored hope outlook because hope is recognized as the single, best biomarker for your mental health and well-being known to science. Self-scoring your hope has also been proven to be accurate. Finally, hope has a unique power as a word. When you hear it, it points you to the future. Having hope for your future is a a powerful mental health tool!
HopeCheck is 100% free for every participant (your standard text data rates may apply per your mobile phone plan).
You can opt-out of HopeCheck at any time by texting the word “stop” to the same HopeCheck number you used to join. Parents or guardians can also revoke their consent by texting “stop” to the same phone number they gave their consent.

HopeCheck org, LLC is a registered Delaware Public Benefits Corporation that was started by a family foundation who lost a family member from a mental health struggle. Our goal is simple: We want to help people who are silently suffering with mental health issues. We created a unique way they can express their suffering. That way is by self-scoring their hope. When hope is high, mental health is strong. When hope is low, mental health is weak.
We also help our subscribers by identifying for them persistent drops in hope scores so they can help participants with mental health issues early. Early awareness of an emerging mental health issue leads to early intervention. Early intervention is the single most effective strategy to provide someone with the best mental health care available!
