About this Project:

Our project addresses mental and emotional health with therapy, wellness checks, and methods people can use to brighten up their health.

Our process started by noticing a major problem our school faced. We noted that feeling comfortable talking about our emotions was a struggle so we decided to focus on mental and emotional health. Our design has evolved by seeing ux designs so people can see how the app works and don't have a difficult time navigating around. We evolved it by using other mental/physical apps as reference to a friendly ui design. Finally we combined the two and were able to get the finished

More About this Project

For example, in those three links we shared the progress of our app, like how we chose a mental health topic and why, how to use our app, the purpose of the app, and some other apps we need to keep in mind that don’t have the same features or look alike. As for the images showing the progress of our app our logo did not look like that at first but with some progress we were able to change it.

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Principal Experience Designer at Verizon — Emoti-Con Judge
- This project provides an approach to address a key real-world problem for the intended audience.
- The presentation content shows a persuasive command of the topic, including a key issue - the discomfort students have talking about mental health and emotions. The team identified the differences between mental and emotional well-being.
- The deck was easy to read, and discussed how the team had audited other applications and real-world mental health methods.
- I would have liked to see more creative output of the strong concept, in a video walkthrough, design, application, or next steps.

I look forward to seeing how this concept is realized and used by the intended audience.

👏 Sr. Integrated Marketing Manager at Microsoft — Emoti-Con Judge
Hi, Manisha, Jillian, Jazlene, Nickte! Thank you so much for tackling such an important issue. I really appreciated your explanation about why this topic was relevant to you, and your thorough research on the subject. When developing a new tech project, it's important to show how your technology can help support behavior (for instance, is there a way that technology could remind people to take some of the mindfulness actions you recommend on slide 3?) I’m excited to see where this project takes you!
