One out of six US adults lives with mental illness and millions who suffer from other medical conditions that affect them and the world around them. We developed Circle, a form of communication for people with similar mental and physical illnesses to interact with each other in a friendly and supportive virtual and physical environment.
What it does
Circle is an all-in-one service that creates specific chat rooms based on a user's preference of support group. The website allows users to not only communicate through threads, but it also enables virtual meetups which supports convenience.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
That we were able to produce and demo a product that is necessary in our world today, that can impact society. And that we were able to complete this all within the time-frame of the hackathon.
What we learned
What's next for Circle
We will be integrating more functionality to the website so that when users interact with it, it can become something intuitive and relatable.
