Nod is addressing loneliness on college campuses.

Combining science and student-powered design to give students the skills they need to build meaningful social connections.


Science backed. Research tested.

Nod is an intervention rooted in the latest evidence-based practices including positive psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness self-compassion. In 2019 the Nod intervention was tested in a randomized controlled trial at the University of Oregon. The study found Nod use buffered students against mid-semester loneliness and depression.

Designed for Students with Students

We believe that young people play an integral role in defining the issues that are most important to them and in shaping the solutions. We work alongside young people throughout our design process and our products are undoubtedly better for it.
