About this Project:

Mintful-Health is an app about informing people about mental health. We came up with the idea of a mental health app (Mintful-Health) by interviewing the 6th grade guidance counselor also known as Mr. Olivares. The name mint-ful health came in mind when we thinking of the word mint.

Mint is an herb that is known for refreshing your mouth so mint-ful health is refreshing your mind and trying to make you calm and more aware of yourself. The project was arranged with specific slides for each of us. Slides that we knew most information about so it could be more simpler.

Great name and great concept! I applaud you for choosing to focus on mental health, a very important subject. One thing I particularly like in your presentation is the mood meter--really clever idea! I think it can be really helpful just to take a minute to identify how you're feeling on any given day, and the meter is a cool and fun way to do that. Your explanations about therapy and coping with your feelings are also thoughtful and well-explained.

From a storytelling perspective, I would've liked to see a little more about why these issues matter to YOU, specifically. Maybe you could incorporate some personal stories, or more about what you learned from Mr. Olivares. On the flip side, nice touch with the pixel art characters! That was a nice way to spice up the design and add personality to your slides. Great work on this project--keep it up!

I love this idea. Mental health is something that so many people struggle with, so the potential of this idea is off the charts!! I loved how creative and fun your presentation was and the description of the app features made everything super easy to understand.
My favorite feature was definitely the mood meter which makes it super easy to gauge how someone is feeling on a day and over time! A potential area to look at next is to add some notes or comments to moods so people could see how different habits they have affect their mood. Great idea :)

First of all, I LOVED the design of your slides! It's really refreshing (like mint ;) ) to see how you incorporated your own design and style into the slides. And of course, it fits the theme of Mintful-Health! It's really lovely to see you tackle such an important subject as mental health. I appreciate how you thought about the different ways to support people's mental health. And I also agree with others — the Mood Meter is a fantastic idea! I especially like your idea of how the Mood Meter might help your app make specific suggestions for how people are feeling each day. It would be great to hear more about why this issue is important to you, but overall I loved the creativity and details. Nicely done!

This was a really great project! Mental health is so important and there are not enough easily accessible resources for people to utilize. I really loved your mood meter, it's a great tool to help track and visualize changes in mood. There is a ton of potential in what your app does when people interact with the mood meter and I would love to see how you expand this feature! Thank you for sharing your work!

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