Empathy Gym

Problem Statement: After research, we found that there are a plethora of online blogs, lists, and articles with general information for mental health advocates, however, there is a lack of real life conversation models, independent practicing forums, and assessments of how well the interactions are going.

Scope: Create a website for mental health advocates who are self-motivated to educate themselves about mental health and learn appropriate language to guide meaningful conversations.

Goal: Provides a fun way to train yourself on how to support people in mental health crisis.
