A Mental Health App for Students

I received an email from the mental health charity, Mind, yesterday.  It asks if I am a student, or I could spread the word about their new mental-health-for-university-students app.  I'm happy to oblige:

Mind - for better mental health
Hi Paul,
      
Do you know a student (maybe you are a student)? The thing is,we just made an app called Emoodji - to help people at uni stay mentally healthy - available now for iPhone and Android!
                             
We really need your help spreading the word, by sharing these links to students up and down the UK :

              
And it definitely is *not* your typical ‘mental health app’...
               
Emoodji is a way for friends at uni to send emoji selfies to each other, while also keeping an eye on each other's wellbeing. You probably know how mental health problems can seemingly start at Uni, sometimes with devastating results (in fact, 1 in 8 students have felt suicidal at university). So Emoodji is quite silly, and secretly slightly serious too.
              
Please lend us your support and help spread the word to all the students!
              
              
Many thanks,       
              
Sam at Mind
              
P.S. Of course, if you’re a student yourself please *review it* on the app store!
