We were inspired by the fact that mental disorders affect one in four people (data relased by WHO). More than half of all Americans will be diagnosed with a mental illness in their lifetime. But not everyone will receive the help they need. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, only forty percent of adults and fifty percent of youth receive the medical help they need Mental illnesses should not be thought of any differently from physical illnesses. In fact, I believe the two are inseparable. Because the whole body is connected and interwoven, the two cannot be separated
Receiving help is the most important thing anyone can do for themselves. But unfortunately, the stigma keeps people from getting help. Mental illness should not be something to be ashamed about or thought of differently. When mental illness is treated equally to other illnesses, more people will have the courage to get help and better their lives. and even due to lockdown now people can't go to hospitals.
What it does
Our website helps people to come and tell us their problems and we connect them with a doctor. As we are thinking this idea as a startup so we will take help of some physiatrists.
We collect the data from the user and the doctor gets in touch with the patient and helps him with the treatment. We also has an Appointment booking facility so that the user can schedule it and at the scheduled time the doctor connects with him through an online video calling feature in our website.
So to help the people from there houses we came up with this online mental health services with live video calling with doctor feature. with this both the people ignoring to go to hospital and the people who cannot go to the hospital due to COVID can use this.
How we built it
We built it by putting ourselves in the shoes of doctors and patients so that we can deliver best using Node.js, Express, MongoDB, HTML, CSS, Socket.io , handlebars, peerjs
Challenges we ran into
As we are new to node.js we faced issues with the backend developement. The time constraint is the main component here as everything needs to developed right during this time We also faced a lot of issues in developing the live video chat feature and integrating it.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are really proud that we made something in this hackathon that can be developed and can be used as a startup idea in the near future. We also a made a real time video calling feature which is really needed during this pandemic.
What we learned
Basically we learned a lot about the mental disorders during our idea development phase and post that we also learned a lot of new things while developing the website like sending automated mails! Realtime video chat feature and lot more!!
What's next for BEEWELL SERVICES
We would add some for features to this so that more people get attracted and this can be used as a real life project. As there is a time constraint now we were not able to do add more features We would love to add a bit of Machine learning in our project and give users more soothing experience in finding out their problems and giving solutions for small problems instead of consulting a doctor for everything.
