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.
If you have given your school or organization your mobile number for organization-related communications, simply confirm the opt-in request you get by text. Otherwise, text the word “join” to the HopeCheck number you were given.
For minors under 18, HopeCheck will engage with you to get your parent or guardian's consent before you can participate.
After you join, you’ll start to get a text question once every two weeks during traditional school hours (9am to 1pm). Answer the text and you are done. Takes about three seconds!
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.

Your privacy is very important to everyone. When you opt-in we will ask for your express permission to share your hope score with the person or organization that invited you to join. At no time is your information ever used for marketing purposes.
HopeCheck org, LLC is a registered Delaware Public Benefits Corporation that was started by a family foundation who lost a family member because of a mental health issue. Our goal is simple: We want people who are experiencing a mental health issue get help. We created a unique way to identify those people early on. That way is by self-scoring their hope. When hope is high, mental health is strong. When hope is low, mental health is weak.
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!
