Know more. Care more.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
When it comes to mental illness help is, unfortunately not our natural response. Instead, most people shy away or avoid someone experiencing a mental health emergency. Thinking whatever the person is going through is “personal,” or that “it’s a family matter.”
The intent is to engage the minority of the groups back to the society, with the concept of not thinking mental health as a problem. A specific target audience is “who is willing to help people with mental illness but do not know how to”
How might we help close one's to mentally ill people in such a way that they know how and when to assist mentally ill people.
Mixed anxiety and depression are the most
common mental disorders.
Between 8 - 12% of the population
experience depression each year.
Most people with mental disorders live
productive and positive lives while receiving
treatments for their mental illness.
Some people have severe and persistent
mental disorders which respond
poorly to current treatments.
Mental illness does not respect any
boundaries of race, class or geography.
The majority of people have a friend, acquaintance
or family member who has or has had a mental disorder.

Doctors generally don't brief them about the situation & medications don't help all the time or they do not take it.
People around them do not how to make them feel better.
The person affected with mental illness, at the beginning does not agree on having the doctor see him or would not let anyone talk to him. So, the people around him will face a problem to talk to him and make him himself understand that there is a behavioral change within him.
Gain trust Act fairly, respect, and also try to make work fun by communicating well and often.
Use it where it’s possible. Personalization is undeniably loved by everyone. Flexible settings, fonts, colors and sizes are a winner when it simply comes to picking an app among similar ones. Make the app look and work the way they want to. Positive emotions can easily tip the scales in favour.
Naturally, there are lots of apps that mostly rely on the availability of an Internet connection. However, access to features and content in the offline mode is a must-have even in complex corporate systems. Exact features may be so specific that it would be difficult to categorize them.
