The B!G Idea Dashboard > Team > Mentality

Our Idea

Why did your team choose to focus on this challenge?

We chose this because mental illness is a big problem in young people and although there is a lot more awareness now then ever, there is still a lot of stigma around it.

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

We knew that mental health was a problem but we never knew how big of an issue it was. There is so much stigma that goes along with teenage mental health.

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

1. Money issues- Our hero struggles to balance school, work and her social life, especially as her mother doesn't work. 2. Feeling lonely- she struggles to form friendships due to working alot and her mental health

Ask your Mentor anything.

How can we get started on coming up with a solution.
