How it works


OVA provides online counseling service for youth at difficulty.
We show ads and guide to pages for people who searches terms
such as suicide by using search advertisements.
We assess and break down their problems and difficulties through listening closely
to their situation, using emails, phones, and online texting.

By organizing and understanding their problem, we bridge them to
real support such as hospitals and administrations as necessary.
We work with a team of Psychologists and  Social Workers.


Seeing Japan’s Suicide by numbers
Japan has one of the worst youth suicide rates in the Developed countries.
Focusing on the problem of “Suicidal People cannot ask for real help “
we approached to the high-risk people using their search behaviors.

Voiceless “Help”
When we started our activity, about 200,000 times of “I want to die”
was searched every month.
We are providing support for who cannot ask for help in the real world.


Our achievement 
We have provided counseling to over 600 people, with 30% of Suicide Preventing effect.
We are publishing our effect on research papers.
