About this Project:

The issue that my project addresses is Mental health and physical health. Mental Health can happen between childhood, adolescence, to adulthood. This has an impact on a person psychologically and physically. Now, you may be wondering, “Why did you choose Mental Health”? I choose this because many people go through mental and physical issues. Sometimes people rather not talk or express their emotions. So I wanted a safe space for users to talk and relate.

More About this Project

So, the video I provided shows how the app would work if created. I created this project because I wanted to build a safe space for people since there are a lot of issues with apps that are supposed to help with mental health and physical health. Especially from people who have come out to speak about these issues. Also because many people find it hard to ask for help either because someone is emotionally or physically abusing the person or a repeating pattern of thoughts that ‘you are okay’. So people who struggle with mental and physical health can all come to this app and find a friend. A person you would relate to or trust. As well as providing help to people's actual needs and feelings in a safer environment. This would be where people heal with each other and connect.

Feedback from the Judges:

Loved the concept and ideas within this app. Tackles an issue so many people face and would be very helpful

👏 HR Tech Strategy at Guardian Life — Emoti-Con Judge
Thanks for contributing a solution option for this important topic, as many people struggle with mental health and could use a safe space and a helpful community willing to lend an ear. The designs and animations are very creative and could help add a level of comfort.

In future iterations, you may want to consider shortening your video to 2-3 minutes and highlighting the key benefits for users. Well done so far and keep the ideas and actions flowing!

Interesting and innovative thought process to address a relevant problem in our day to day lives. A centralized solution where a community can confide, uplift, and grow together is critical in addressing mental health issues that's prevalent in our society. Great idea - for future execution, focus on hitting the key objectives for each feature of your solution!

Elizabeth Sumpter
👏 Development Director at Mouse — Emoti-Con Judge
Really great project! I appreciate how at the beginning of the app allows for the user to indicate how they're feeling, and that the feelings get tracked whenever a user opens the app. I also enjoyed the "specialist" portion on the app that indicates resources that can be available for the individual. Good work!

The thought put for the app is amazing because it shows people thoughts be taken into consideration, since this helps to hear out so many voices who can't be seem or heard.
