Inspiration

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

We used lots of creativity, coffee and of course, JavaScript and PHP.

Challenges we ran into

We ran into some challenges during the ideation phase of the project as well as learning JavaScript.

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

We learned a how to use JavaScript, connecting to different API's.

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.
