PROJECT GOALS

Allow users to create a visual representation for their journey with mental health to reduce stigma

The Mental Wellness Profile is a tool for users to create a visual representation for their journey with mental health that can be used to share their experiences with others in an easy, enjoyable way. Answers to questions such as “What mental health struggles have you experienced?” and “What is something you do to help your mental health flourish?” would be used to generate a graphic displaying their personalized responses in a customizable format that would allow it to be shown to others.

The MWP allows users to widely share information about their mental health on social media in a less vulnerable, personal way than directly telling their story. In doing so, they would be decreasing social stigma, fighting the shame associated with mental illness and mental health struggles, creating a larger voice for the mental health community, and starting discussions about important mental wellness topics and issues.
