During shelter in place, the feeling of total isolation leads to poor mental health and a lack of motivation and productivity. Sometimes you want to just talk to someone and have them listen to you and acknowledge your feelings, but you want a safe and inclusive space to do this.
What it does
With mPath, we wanted to connect people again with face to face contact and discussion of their emotions to solve problems, without needing to schedule a time, which can often cause added stress. There are other resources and support groups to really provide a holistic place where the user can feel like they are supported in any of their emotional and mental states or needs.
How I built it
We used Figma to design and prototype, and implemented using React.js as front-end, Node.js as back-end, PostgreSQL as database.
Challenges I ran into
Not enough time to finish everything we envisioned on the prototype.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Working on a team to leverage strengths to complete this project.
What I learned
That having an idea and bringing it to life are complicated and take time!
What's next for mPath
Finishing the coding and continue to develop the content, resources, and interaction of the site to fully flesh out the capabilities!
