About this Project:

Our project addresses depression and helps people access to therapist and daily motivations to help them feel better. A lot of teens in our school and community are struggling with their mental health but the only resource they believed they had was just teachers in our school which was really unfortunate.

Our App addresses the issue of depression and mental health issues by providing a safe space for individuals to share what they’re going through daily, and receive comments from people who may have experienced similar issues or people who are currently facing the same issue. Also Our app helps provide easy access to therapy with our “Find therapist” feature, this feature has the sole purpose of helping our targeted audience to allocate professional help. Aside all that we also have the option of displaying daily affirmations on our users lock screens, to help them feel motivated, included and loved.

Well done on creating a project that is well designed with excellent colors and visuals. The topic is relevant and one that we need to continue highlighting in the public eye. Your app brings so many excellent features to the User including daily affirmations (who doesn't love a little mental boost to start their day!), ease of finding a Therapist, and even a chat feature. Very cool!

I also enjoyed seeing the data you provided. I would take it a step further and outline how many Teens you interviewed from your school and other schools. For example, you interviewed 100 Teens and 75% of said Teens would like to see more Mental Health resources in their schools.

I would recommend thinking of a confidential feature when it comes to the chat feature. Teens may feel more comfortable talking to peers, if their real identify is hidden.

Overall, you did a wonderful job thinking of a way to bring Mental Health resources to your peers. The more resources like yours, the better equipped people will be to handle stressors in life.
