I Struggle Too
PROJECT GOAL: Our app intends to help students with mental health issues receive advice from students similar to them rather than the standard of normally receiving advice from an adult perspective. This project will address the access to mental health inequity.
High school is a stressful time. Many students struggle with their mental health, especially since COVID-19. We wanted to create an app that will connect students so that they can provide each other with advice on the issues they struggle with. Often when struggling, it’s more beneficial hearing what someone their age found helpful than a parent or guardian telling them. Many teens may not seek help with their mental health because of embarrassment or fear or may not have the ability to access professional mental health support, so we wanted to provide a safe space built for them.
