My own experiences with anxiety as a second-generation immigrant have helped me. For many kids with immigrant parents, mental health issues are often trivialized. Consequentially, these kids don't have the chance to go to therapy or learn strategies to deal with their issues. This app doesn't replace a therapist but it does provide an alternative solution.
What it does
This app teaches young people easy, actionable skills to implement over time to learn to deal with stress and anxiety. It promotes positive habits and patterns through daily reminders to implement the skills taught and by tracking progress.
How I built it
I built this application on Eclipse using Java. I built a mock-up for the UI on Adobe XD
Challenges I ran into
As a freshman in CS, I do not have much knowledge on graphics. It was hard to make the application fully functional and graphical
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I was able to foster a clean and seamless user experience through my Adobe XD mockup
What I learned
I learned more about how to make classes work together to solve problems in JAVA.
What's next for Mental Ninja
I want to implement the graphical interface on Eclipse and make the app fully functional!
