Plenty of Fish Shines Light on Mental Health & Wellness with New Partnership Providing 5,000 Members with Free Self-Care Resources
VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a recent study from dating app Plenty of Fish, nearly one-third of U.S. singles have experienced increased levels of anxiety over the past six months. To help daters find some relief and prioritize mental health, Plenty of Fish is partnering with Shine, the No. 1 self-care app created by women of color, to provide free Shine Premium memberships to 5,000 Plenty of Fish members.
Beginning Friday, Oct. 9, and just in time for World Mental Health Day (Oct. 10), Plenty of Fish members will receive access to 800+ meditations, calming sounds and sleep stories, journaling exercises, tools to track mood and gratitude, and a space to reflect on self-care with a global community. Additionally, two new dating-related meditations developed to help singles better manage anxiety and improve mental health and wellness, including "Navigate Dating During COVID" and "Balance Dating While Busy" will be available for free to all Shine members.
"We believe that happy and healthy relationships start with happy and ealthy individuals, which is why, during this unprecedented time, we're committed to providing our members with the tools they need to prioritize their mental health and well-being." said Plenty of Fish Head of Global Marketing, Stefan Harvalias. "We regularly gather insights from our members about pain points they experience in dating, and this partnership with Shine is a prime example of how we leverage the findings to improve the dating experience for our members."
Over the past year, Plenty of Fish has explored dating pressures with focused attention on anxiety tied to COVID-19 in recent months. Results from the latest study demonstrate just how challenging dating has been for singles this year.
Dating in 2020:

And through that daily ritual, they feel more confident, calm, and present on that next date," said Naomi Hirabayashi, co-founder of Shine.
