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

We chose mental health as it is very important and it is common within people our age. We want to try and help as much as we can.

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

That from the age of 13, 1 in 3 people can struggle with some form of mental health issue.

What have you learnt about your Hero?

We’ve researched that our hero is age 17 because that is a very common age for people to struggle with their mental health.

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

Improve her schools support for her

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

One solution we were thinking of is providing a service like weekly or monthly check in with the guidance counsellors in school.

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

I didn’t have a question
