DENVER, Sept. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- iRel8.org, the leading social network for mental wellness, continues its

explosive growth adding new partners and launching multi-lingual capability covering sixty-three languages to connect people the world over in their native language, using Microsoft's Translate API.

"Mental health does not discriminate and has no borders. We believe launching new technical capabilities via Microsoft, along with our growing network of partners and communities, squarely positions iRel8 as the leading global social network for mental wellness. Our migration to Microsoft Azure, implementation of Microsoft's Translate API, and, recently announced, Azure SignalR Service are critical elements to support exponential growth and ensure seamless delivery of messages to our users across the world," said iRel8 co-founders Dion Gonzales and Jeff Dorchester.

"Mental health issues are at epidemic levels and affect all of us on a global scale. Companies addressing mental health challenges benefit from the trusted and productive Microsoft Azure cloud platform, and have the ability to help people in their native language utilizing the Microsoft Translate API," said Jay Schmelzer, Director, Program Management, Cloud + AI, Microsoft Corp.

Additionally, iRel8 has partnered with iLiveFor.org and We're All a Little "Crazy" to provide anonymous peer support to the communities they serve. These new partners demonstrate mental health impacts all of us and, while they serve different populations, the goal is to help and heal by building a worldwide community.

iLiveFor.org, founded by TED Speaker and Emmy Winner, Nikki Webber Allen, is committed to ending the cultural stigma of depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders in teenagers and young adults of color. Using short films, live events, and social media to inform, inspire, and connect, ILF creates a safe space for honest, unapologetic conversations about mental health in our communities. iRel8's peer-to-peer, anonymous platform gives these kids a safe place to share problems and experiences they face day-to-day. "iRel8 and ILF are proactively using their platforms to stop the stigma with mental health amongst teens and young adults of color," stated Webber Allen.

Additionally, iRel8 has partnered with We're All a Little "Crazy", founded by 15-year professional sports executive, Eric Kussin, to bring together Athletes, Celebrities, and Expert Practitioners, in Alliance, to address the topic of mental health with uniformity through their #SameHere Movement. Kussin is taking his personal experiences with severe PTSD to help others heal utilizing a collection of mental health tools. Amongst athletes and celebrities, mental health awareness is at an all-time high with several famous individuals disclosing their challenges as well as the unfortunate news of recent suicides in this community. "iRel8 is joining in with We're All a Little "Crazy's" #SameHere Alliance, bringing together athletes, celebrities, artists, and companies communicating there are life challenges that ALL people face, regardless of stature, and, it's not about disorders alone, mental health is a topic of interest to us all." stated Kussin.

The core functionality of iRel8 focuses on providing an anonymous, peer-to-peer platform where users can help and heal, much like anonymous, in-person recovery groups have done for decades, but in a confidential and immediately accessible format – people's smartphones. For users, the technology allows anonymity, which encourages open dialogue to stop the stigma often associated with mental health needs. iRel8 also maintains strict terms of use ensuring conversations are safe and appropriate.
