Our VisionLighting paths to mental wellness.

Coraluma is a mental health app that syncs to a beautifully crafted mood base, designed for people with mental health conditions and for the people who support them. 

Our vision is a world where friends, families, and loved ones support each other using Coraluma to improve their mental health habits, understand each other better, and live with lighter hearts.   

Coraluma is a play on words, loosely borrowed from Esperanto, meaning heart and light

Our MissionHealthy minds, glowing hearts.

Each year, 1 in 5 people live with mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety and thoughts of suicide.1

That could be someone you love. Your mother. Your close friend. Maybe even you.

At Coraluma, our mission is to provide a simple way for people to truly connect with each other on days when hope is dim.

And on days when the world looks bright—we can reflect that too.

People living with a mood disorder say they feel all alone and trapped in a long, dark tunnel.3 

Family and friends, try as they might to help, often feel shut out.

Some have told us that helping from the sidelines is like watching an unavoidable train wreck. It's stressful for everyone involved.4 

Our position

We believe that being heard, listened to, and understood is vital for any relationship. So is knowing how someone is feeling, what to say when they need help, and how to act when words cannot readily express how they are doing.

Some good news

Mental health problems are treatable.2  

More good news. Coraluma offers a way to break through the confusion, stigma and guilt experienced by people with mood disorders and by their supportive family and friends.

It starts with you.

Our TeamHatchers, Lean Launchers & Venture Builders



Our team comes from healthcare, design, communications, engineering, and computer science.


Coraluma is managed in partnership with Adaptive Impact, a product incubator and development company.


We know what it's like to support someone close. And we know what it's like to need and ask for help. It's a lot to juggle.

Our GoalLocal networks. Worldwide impact.

Coraluma is creating a global network of individuals who are committed to mental wellness. Whether solo, or together in pairs or trios, our daily actions can have a truly global impact on what we can accomplish together.

Over 300 million people live with depression.

Imagine a world where depression did not prevent people from completing school or earning a living. From acting on their ideas for a better future. From raising children that grow into their full potential. From thinking about suicide. From staying alive. 

We can do this!

How do we know? People like you are ready to make a change. Just look:

  • There are 5 billion unique mobile subscribers globally 2
