About this Project:

Our app Constellations support physical, mental, & spiritual health. We mainly wanted this app to be directed more towards mental health since it matters a lot to us on how you feel on a daily basis. Take the self-abuse situation as an example. We used that situation as an important guide for us to focus on what our app should be about. This app means a lot to us since it supports different parts of health.

We interviewed our teachers & peers and made something out of their answers. We noticed how people from our school self-abuse and it affected us mentally knowing that people harm theirselves. We wanted to make a change and get our point across..Our design process wasn't easy and straightforward. We first thought of an issue, came up with a solution, made our app & remodeled our app last minute because we wanted our app to express positive vibes to the person.

Our project starts off like any other app but then has its own special personal touches & features for the person to feel safer & spread positive vibes as we stated before.

Sincerely, Constellations Business Team. <3

Our App project has flowers which has a special meaning! The flowers that we added into our presentation to represent our app means growth & life. Growing as a person & living a healthy blooming life. Our app name, " Constellations" originate from the actual space-themed stars named Constellations. Constellations represent how we are all connected as one person and together. For example when one of my friends are sad, we are all affected. This shows a feeling of together.

I love how plentiful that app is with features! Y'all did such a great job thinking of ways to help a recovering self-harm victim keep busy and document their progress, but helping prevent future victims. You are tackling such an important issue with your app and doing a great job at it!

Beautifully designed. I really appreciate the effort you all put in to show what each page would look like. I'd challenge you to think deeper about the user experience. The app is full of incredible features that could help someone who was struggling with mental health issues, but it might be hard to find them under settings. What if the initial page after log in was a dashboard linking to each of those activities? This project really has potential to help others in a real way. Good work!

Fantastic job! Thank you for all of your high level thinking and consideration of the user experience for this app! I love the symbols and font choices and the ability to customize.

The plant activity is great for engagement. The mood meter is a good way to qualitatively and quantitatively measure each person's state of being. I also encourage further gamification of the activities (journaling and vent form) in reaching different levels of success as you did with the plant growing section. The prize tracker is great and maybe you could get some sponsorship from company's would like to contribute! Great tiering for the different membership commitments as well. Stupendous!

I love it. It's like a Tamagotchi, Health Tracker, and a Todo list all in one! d=====( ̄▽ ̄*)b for adding symbols as a customization. As dumb as it sounds, that plant might be the only reason someone may want to live another day. It's a difficult topic to talk about openly and I think you did a great job of addressing a very-real issue people (of all ages) suffer, in a way that is encouraging, inclusive, and motivating. I think this project has a lot of potential and really showcases that we should take our mental health journey one step at a time. I think it's great that you also show not only where they are now but how far they've come. It is really important to see that progress.
I would consider adding other avenues as an outlet (journaling, posting vent comments etc) but overall I can tell a lot of work was put into this project and you should be proud of the result.
