At Voda, we're passionate about creating a diverse and inclusive community that uplifts each other.
For our friends and partners, we're glad to provide mental health resources designed by our team of experts.
Here are step-by-step instructions on how to claim a Premium subscription of the Voda app.
Once you have downloaded and installed the app, create an account by clicking "Get started for free". If you already have an account, click "Log in".
After logging in, you will be taken to the home screen of the app. Tap to "Progress" on the bottom-menu bar, and then tap on the gear icon located at the top right corner of the screen. This will take you to the "Settings" page.
On the Settings page, you will see "Friends of Voda" (highlighted in red) in this picture.
Tap on this button to bring up a pop-up window.
If you have received a redemption code from one of our partner organisations, select the organisation and then enter your code under "Enter code here..." and tap "Submit".
Your Premium account will be activated within the next 24 hours.
If you encounter any issues with the redemption process, please contact Voda support at firstname.lastname@example.org with the title "Voda Redemption."
If you have received a Friends of Voda redemption code for the Voda app and are not sure how to activate your Premium subscription, this FAQ section can help. We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions related to the redemption process.
A Friends of Voda redemption code is a unique code provided to you by one of Voda's partner organisations, which can be used to claim a Premium subscription. You should receive this code in an invitation email from Voda's partner organisation. If you cannot find your partner redemption code, please contact the partner organisation directly.
Your Premium subscription should be activated within the next 24 hours after redeeming your partner code. If you still do not have access to Premium features after 24 hours, please contact Voda support at email@example.com with the title "Voda Redemption."
Sometimes the Premium subscription might not trigger automatically on your app. If you still see a screen asking you to upgrade after you have redeemed your code, click on the “Restore Purchase” button on the Voda app to resolve this issue.
The Premium subscription of the Voda app includes unlimited access to Voda's exclusive LGBTQIA+ mental wellness content created by LGBTQIA+ psychotherapists. Topics include coping with gender dysphoria, coming out, dealing with internalised shame, as well as queer-led meditations and exercises.
The Voda app offers a wide range of wellness content tailored specifically to the needs of the LGBTQIA+ community. This includes guided meditations, guided self-therapy exercises, cognitive journaling, breathing exercises, self-care practices, and more. Most of the wellness programmes on the Voda app are audio-based, allowing you to listen and participate from anywhere, at any time.
The Voda app was created by a team of LGBTQIA+ individuals and mental health professionals who saw a need for a mental wellness app specifically tailored to the needs of the LGBTQIA+ community. The team includes experts in mental health, technology, and design, and is dedicated to creating a safe and supportive space for the LGBTQIA+ community to access high-quality mental health services. Learn more about the team here.
The app is designed to be discreet. The app logo is designed to be simple, and you will not receive notifications on your phone with references to LGBTQIA+ issues. This is because we recognise that many of us might like to receive notifications in a way that is discreet and non-intrusive.
Our audio programmes and wellness exercises often reference LGBTQIA+ issues, and so you might wish to listen to the audio programmes with earphones on, or in a private space where you can listen and journal without being disturbed.
If you are interested in becoming a partner organisation of the Voda app, you can reach out to Voda's partnership team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The team will review your request and get back to you with more information on the partnership opportunities available. Voda partners with a wide range of LGBTQIA+ organisations to provide resources and support to the community, so don't hesitate to get in touch if you think your organisation could benefit from a partnership with Voda.
We're building Voda from the ground up, together with our community.
