Global Problems/Global Solutions
For this final Post Course Assessment project the instruction was to come up with a problem or challenge that people face in their daily basics, and then propose a solution to this issue. I choose the topic about mental health. Mental illness is big subject to talk about, specially when this is something that affect everyone somehow either directly of indirectly.
About one in five American adults experienced a mental health issue. One in 10 young people experienced a period of major depression. One in 25 Americans lived with a serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or major depression. Even these conditions are very common, there is a huge stigma about mental illnesses in society because of the lack of education about this subject.
In order to deal with this challenge, I propose to create a mobile Application where people around the world can inform them-selves about mental health, and what they can do to help. I decided to named this application AwareMe. Mission Statement: Our mission is to inform and educate everybody around the world about mental health and its impact in our life. Below is a video I created to show the functionality of the app.
