About this Project:
Our app provides a solution for young adults struggling to ask for help because they don't have the confidence to ask an adult. We wanted all young adults to feel comfortable to reach out for any help they may need. Our group has witnessed people in our community struggling with sadness and loneliness and we wanted to help them seek help. This is app has a very personal connection for us.
Our project and design process has evolved from each member working on the project and thinking of how it can be helpful. It is designed to be available to everyone in our community. We used a designing software called Figma to form the wireframing of the app. If the app were to be fully developed it would work like any other app out there.

Feedback from the Judges:
I am an electrical engineer and have worked for hi-tech companies all my career, mostly software companies. Currently, I lead the US operations for a European software startup. I live in New York City.
There is a bit of a risk when you pick a big issue like mental health that you cannot really help or not help enough. You have made a smart choice to only provide a subset of all the features you could offer. This is a good idea, it is better to offer some small features in a first version of the app than to get lost with too many screens. Simple designs are usually winners with mobile apps.
I would love to see more design work, in particular when it comes to your user interface. When someone has problems they usually don't have the patience to understand an app, so in your case it is extremely important to have a clean, inviting and simple design. You should do more work to optimize for that.
Overall this is very good work, it is simple, helps with a major issue and is definitely helpful.
