Our Idea

Why did your team choose to focus on this challenge?

We chose to focus on this specifically because we all agreed that we could do more about mental health and make places more open about it, to avoid anyone thinking that they should keep it to themselves when they need help.

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

I began to understand the complexities of mental health that I didn’t know/understand before e.g the complexities of the medication for mental health such as antidepressants.

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

We were thinking of having a designated time during the day for students, or in this case our hero, to have a chance to close their eyes and not think about anything for at least 10-15 minutes. We believe that this would help improve their academic performances seeing as they get to have a break other than lunch. We also believe that being able to choose how your timetable is going to look and be would also help because we’d be giving them a chance to find what works best for them as well as including two classes a week that is solely dedicated to catching up on any work, classes or notes they’ve missed out on to prevent falling behind.

Ask your Mentor anything.

Do you think this would work? If not could you please explain why, and how we could improve in an area or two.
