What is Silly Opera?
Silly Opera is the platform which enables mental health conversations through text and audio. You can also connect to trained volunteer counselors for one on one talks.
Is Silly Opera right for me?
Silly Opera is open to anyone who wants to have conversations in a group setting as well as in person on one on one basis. It is an inclusive community and does not discriminate against you on any basis. In case you require help with counseling and other emergency concerns, we suggest you seek help from other sources.
Do I have to pay to become a member?
Silly Opera will be an open community on discord. It will be a free network, you don't need to pay us for group conversations.
Will I also get access to counselors?
Neither the members nor the trained volunteers have any expertise to provide you with guidance and counselling. The professional counselling section is a work in progress for Silly Opera. If you need assistance from medical practitioners, you can use other resources. We will also update our go to resources soon.
