Why as a team did you choose to focus on this challenge?

We chose this challenge as it is a very common issue in todays world and is widely over looked. especially with social media and phone younger people now a days can self diagnose themselves with these issues even though they might not have it.

What do you know now about the challenge that you didn't know before?

We learned that not everyone that claims to have mental health problems actually does have them. People like this take away from the people who have genuine mental issues. But also the opposite because especially in middle aged men they could have depression or have been diagnosed with something but bottle it up and not tell anyone about it.

What have you learnt about your Hero?

We learned with a better mindset and having goals in life you can greatly tackle and improve your mental health by yourself.

If you could improve one thing for your Hero what would that be?

If I could improve one thing for our hero I would chose to improve the facilities and support they got and get on the mental health so that they don't have to feel as if they are fighting on there own .

Do you have any ideas for a potential solution? No matter how raw, share them with your Mentors for feedback.

Encourage people to study psychology so that help is more widely accessible to people such as our hero

Ask your Mentor anything …. This is a chance to ask your Mentors a direct question relating to your Big Idea.
