Our Idea

Why did your team choose to focus on this challenge?

We chose to focus on this challenge as we feel it is really important to strive to find solutions as it impacts many people all over the world. We were passionate about it, as we, as teenagers, can relate to this challenge and have friends and family that deal with mental health.

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

From our research, we discovered that the term 'mental health' is extremely broad and has so many aspects to it. We also learned that people can go about their daily lives but be struggling internally. We also learned how drug addiction can impact your mental health.

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

Problem: Our hero struggles to maintain relationships due to his depression and social anxiety. Solution 1: Create an app to support those suffering with depression and link them to peers in similar situations Solution 2: Support group in college Solution 3: Social Check-in Service - visit their house to check in

Ask your Mentor anything.

Could you fine tune any of the above solutions to make them more tangible?
