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

We decided to focus on Mental Health because we both struggle with stress and enxiety . And we wish that there was a way where we could ask for help but not in person because in our opinion it’s more stressful to ask for help.

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

From the research we did we found out that the mental health is like an open book because there isn’t a definite answer of what exactly mental health is and how we can overcome it.

What have you learnt about your Hero?

We learned that our hero suffers mostly in silence and doesn’t like to talk about his own problems. He has really bad self esteem. He always criticises himself when ever he does anything and overthinks everything he dose.

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

I wish to help him talk about what’s bother him so that he doesn’t have to build this bad energy inside of himself because it causes that he is more and more self critical.

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

We where thinking of making an online chat where people can talk about what their stressed about, so that we could possibly give them solutions and things they can do to help.

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

How do you know that your idea is going to work?
