Our Idea

Why did your team choose to focus on this challenge?

We chose to focus on this challenge because it’s such a common challenge especially amongst young people, which isn’t always treated as seriously as it should be.

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

Approximately 1 in 5 teenagers suffer with mental health disorders.

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

We would like to work on treating binge eating disorder. One solution could be working on building a keto diet, as it doesn’t rely as much on reducing food, rather reducing carbs moderately so that they don’t have to suddenly adapt to eating less than they do, and can work on losing weight in the process. This will slowly give them back control over what they eat so they can reach their goal. Another solution we thought of is a service that could slowly build up to foods that people with binge eating disorders restrict themselves from, because often you will see people with BED restricting themselves from certain foods resulting in cravings and overeating. This service can suggest ways to include small portions of certain foods, building it up to larger portions so that the person with BED can realise it’s harmless. It could be an app or website.

Ask your Mentor anything.

If we came up with an app or website, do we actually have to make it or just describe how it’d be?
