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

we chose this topic of mental health because we think mental health is important to us and its a very common thing that a lot of people struggle with nowadays. we also think its important to speak out. we also want to be educated on mental health encase we need to help someone else. its also an important focus because people shouldn't be ashamed for thinking they have a mental illness because in reality its very normal and can also gain communication skills between the two people who are talking and great understanding for the person listening.

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

from our research, we have discovered that the person we are researching has been through a very tough time and it's not fair. he recently got divorced, he struggles with mental illnesses such as bipolar, depression and Kanye himself has said in public he thinks he has a slight case of autism. he is really scared to find out and test for these illnesses because he thinks it could possibly ruin his life and some people bully other people for being mentally ill.

What have you learnt about your Hero?

our hero is Kanye West, the reason we have chose him as our hero is because he is a celebrity who has recently been struggling with mental health issues such as bipolar disorder and his symptoms are as followed depression, feeling sad and angry one minute and happy and fun and playful it can also be extreme mood swings the reason for this is unknown there could be many reasons for sombody to develop bipolar disorder. Kanye west has recently changed his name to YE wich could be caused by his bipolar disorder.

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


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

we think a space or place could be made for adults or teens and even kids these programs could be placed in youth clubs, after school clubs and churches. people could volunteer to help and listen to other peoples worries and issues they think they might have. between set hours and with a certain amount of people so its not overcrowded and overwhelming. these programs might help people speak out about their problems with mental health. it might also show people they are not alone and there will be people there to help them get better.

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