About this Project:

Our project is called Happy Health. The app is designed to address the stigma and challenges of living with mental health struggles. Since COVID, the number of people admitting to struggling with mental health problems has drastically increased. This app provides numerous resources, strategies, and affirmations to support the user through their difficult times. We have a diverse list of medical providers, daily quotes, relaxing games and music and more.

Once we decided that the problem we should focus on was mental health, we began by making a rough list of ideas. We interviewed a variety of community members to get the most varied results possible. With that feedback, we were able to storyboard and wireframe what we felt were the most important aspects to focus on.

Our project provides the user with a simple interface that is welcoming to all age groups. The user will be able to choose which experience will be best for them in the moment. We hope that this project will help make a hard time in people's life just a bit easier.

Great Design
Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Associate Professor at Lehman College / CUNY — Emoti-Con Judge
Great visual design on this! I like the graphics and user interface. Mental health is a huge issue that people are trying to deal with, the question remains as to how you get people with mental health issues using apps like these and not just denying that they have these issues?

👏 Contributing Writer at Uloop — Emoti-Con Judge
This app is such an amazing idea and it is so relevant. The world is in such need of this and it is an app I would personally use. On the donation page, it'd be helpful to know on the app itself what the donations go for, but I do appreciate that this was clarified in the video. I do love that the donations go to support those who need to get mental health help but can't afford it- this is such a sad reality for so many in the United States. I truly hope you launch this app- the daily tasks and challenges are definitely things I would do to help me with my mental health.

👏 Lead Immersive Designer/ Content Lead at IBM — Emoti-Con Judge
This is a great project! I love that this app encourages users to give back to their communities and to help themselves feel better. I love your design and attention to detail. Consider how to also use this app to connect people to find peer-to-peer support as well. Great job.

👏 President & COO at Modern Fanatic LLC — Emoti-Con Judge
This is a solid presentation you should be extremely proud of yourselves. The design work on this was very impressive and the thought that went into each aspect of the app was strong as well. Great work. Finding influencers or businesses to work with to help mass adoption of this app would hopefully get you to that next level.
