Our brains love anything bright and shiny, and screens are no exception. Do them a favor by removing color from the equation. Going grayscale reduces your urge to keep scrolling — and only takes a second.


SocialMediaU is an evidence-based digital wellness program, co-designed with youth, to educate young people on the connections between emotional health and digital habits and transform their sense of self and their relationship with technology.

We partner with schools, after school programs and mental health centers in the USA and UK.

The future of digital wellbeing starts here.

Digital Wellbeing is a spectrum, and we’re all on it. #HalfTheStory is a 501c3 non-profit on a mission to empower the next generation's relationship with technology. As pro-tech pioneers since 2015, we challenge why and how technology impacts our minds. Through cutting-edge science, research, and grassroots organizing, we are leading the movement to make mental health a fundamental right.

We are a movement empowering the next generation of digital natives.
