Our Idea

Why did your team choose to focus on this challenge?

We chose it because mental health is a big issue in Ireland, and it doesn't get talked about nearly enough. Mental illness affects people everywhere and it is crucially important to discuss it openly and have resources for those in need.

What have you learned about the challenge that you didn't know before?

We have learnt that mental health doesn't always have to be serious to be an issue in someone's life and that all mental health is important.

Outline the specific problem you would like to solve for your Hero and two or three solutions you think would help.

Me and my group and I have decided we will make a small video to spread awareness for mental health due to the fact it is a big problem that needs to be solved.We would like help in the digital and editing aspects of filming this video as we discuss our project. We decided to make an app in order to tackle our challenge. We had a meeting with a Professor of Computer Science and discussed our solution to the problem, and the features we want in our app. Our most important feature we discussed are the motivational quotes we want to show to the user daily. We also want to link in different sites that help with mental health problems for teens, like Jigsaw. We also want to add meditation tips, hydration tips and a “ what do you struggle with function.

Ask your Mentor anything.
