We see many incidents on the news about people who commit suicide due to stress. It is estimated that approximately 5 million deaths worldwide are attributed to mood and anxiety disorders each year and Over 7 lakh people die due to suicide every year. This has become excessively concerning in the last few decades. To reduce this all we need is a person who we can share our thoughts with. This makes a person's mind feel light and this could actually help in avoiding suicidal thoughts. And that's how we came up with this idea.
What it does
This website allows users to check their stress levels by answering few simple questions about themselves. The user can then connect with other people just like them and talk about everything that is disturbing or hurting them. They can do all of this staying anonymous. This helps in reliving their stress and could help them avoid suicidal thoughts. Talking with a person and letting your emotions flow would help the users in stopping this from becoming a big problem.
How we built it
We built the prototype of Stress Level Checker using the website Figma. We began by making a rough draft and submitting it to multiple changes until we got to the final look and design of the prototype.
Challenges we ran into
We had to put many things together to get here. We had do hours of research on how stress levels can be checked. We had to look into many things before we selected the questions that determine the stress levels. We also had to look for fonts and designs that would look peaceful for the users. In the limited time we had, we had to come up with things that would actually help and we had to make many changes to make it a pleasant experience for the users.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are overall incredibly proud that we were able to complete a finalized prototype of Stress Level Checker, and that this is a step closer to providing a tool to help people out there and promote better mental health. We want to make an impact on people and creating this project has shown us that we can truly help.
What we learned
We learned a lot about stress and the impact it has on a person's mental health. As well as the many factors that contribute to stress and poor mental health. We also learned how to use the website Figma in order to create our prototype for Stress Level Checker.
What's next for Stress Level Checker
In the future we would like to develop this website into an app. We would also grow our network and connect our users with professional psychologists and other doctors. As of now everything can be done anonymously but in the future we will include a sign up option so that users can choose to remain anonymous or share about themselves to the world. We are also planning to include a discussion forum in the website.
