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

We choose mental health as it's becoming bigger issue everyday for young people

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

That 1 in 7 people in the world suffers from a mental issue

What have you learnt about your Hero?

Our hero, Sam, suffers from loneliness which gives him anxiety and depression. He suffers from this as he doesn't have much friends due to his lack of confidence

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

Increased self-confidence so he can go out and make new friends

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

A solution we were thinking of is that of a app where you can tell your hobbies/interests and the app will then show groups with similar hobbies/interests. This can help people be more social by connecting with new people.

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

I have no question to ask
