About this Project:
First, we created a wireframe for the app and then a colored mockup. After some peer review and mentor sessions we realized we didn’t have enough detail and features. After that on Figma, we took feedback from our peers and added more features, and made it more detailed for the user.
If we could build it the app would help users feel calmer with simple easy-to-use features like being able to browse/search meditation-videos, and talk with peers or professionals. The user can also complete surveys on their mental health to record progress our app will also have a hotline.

Your focus on addressing mental health challenges is highly commendable. This is a vital area that needs more attention, and your thoughtful approach to it is heartening to see.
Moving forward, consider a more detailed competitive analysis. The mental health app space is a crowded one, so a specific understanding of what makes your app different will be crucial in its success.
Finally, a brief video walkthrough of your concept could help others better understand your intentions and the desired impact of your concept. This could also be a great opportunity for you to further showcase your passion and expertise.

I think you should put more consideration into safety. I thinking the chat feature can be super helpful and will give people a sense of connection. However, since you're working with young people, some of them minors, you might have people question you about the safety around this and how you will monitor these chats. You're still early in your process so there is plenty of time to think about it but I believe this is a question you will receive a lot. At my organization, CareerVillage, we facilitate conversations between students and professionals. We ensure safety by having a volunteer team of moderators who review ALL content. Something similar could be the solution for you.
