About OTR Listens

OTR Listens is an online platform and community to provide you with a safe, non-judgmental outlet and emotional support when faced with life challenges, based on the following three support pillars:

Realtime Chat-based Service. Lends a “listening ear and understanding and compassionate heart”, providing a cathartic outlet for you to share your life challenges and stressors, and to receive emotional support and validation.

Community. Allows anonymous sharing of emotions, feelings, stories, concerns, challenges and aspirations. These shared feelings and personal expressions are curated and posted on the site. This community of shared  personal  expressions creates a form of social support - that you are not alone on your journey.

Self-Care and Referral Resources. Allows access to simple self-care resources and self-help tips, plus links to other community resources as well professional help including counsellors and psychotherapists.

About Over-The-Rainbow

Over-The-Rainbow  (OTR) is the mental wellness initiative of the WholeTree Foundation, the not-for-profit family foundation of Yen-Lu & Yee Ling Chow, founded in loving memory of their son and only child Lawrance H.
