“A Brief Discussion”

A Web Project
By Cristino
a High School Student from Thomas A. Edison Career & Technical High School

About this Project:

This project could help spread awareness of some mental health issues by giving a brief description of the illness with some of its symptoms and giving treatment options. The mental illness you get is decided randomly by the page picking a number between 1 and 5.
It was originally going to be a videogame, but I couldn't figure out how to get the controls to work.

Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

Chelsea Rodriguez 👏 Computer Science Graduate at Queens College — Emoti-Con Judge
Very creative concept of creating a on click feature to randomly alternate between each mental illness. This project showed a clear and great concept to bring awareness to those battling mental illnesses. This website provides an informative approach to mental illness which can be a useful tool especially since some people are not aware of certain resources and symptoms they might have. Great work!

This project shares incredibly important and useful information in a way that is more engaging and interactive than your average health awareness website.
I really enjoyed the design - the colors and pictures and movement made me want to interact with the site more, and learn more as a result, though if I have any feedback it would be to try and make the information a little bit more readable. Small changes, like putting spaces in between paragraphs, using bulleted lists, or putting the most important information in bold, or in larger font, can make the information easier to digest for the average reader.
I think the technical ability displayed here with the code is excellent, and I love that you included the source info and encouraged people to interact with the console!
This is a great project and has the potential to help people - keep up the great work!

San Tong 👏 Social Media Manager at Self Employed — Emoti-Con Judge
Great project on the very important issue of mental health that's done in a colorful way. This could really help people to identify some of the issues that they or other people in their community are facing. I would suggest breaking up the information into a more digestible format with spacing, bullets, or sections. Great job!!

This is a great start - don't worry about not making it a game! You demonstrated your idea well and made a very good initial prototype.

Thank you for a record-breaking 14th anniversary event! Comments are officially closed until next year.
