5% of adults, aged 18 or older, experience a mental illness in any one year. That’s 43.8 million people experiencing hardships that interfere with their everyday lives. This statistic inspired Uplift, our app which aims to help those who are suffering mental health issues by offering a consistent solution to monitoring and developing a strong, positive mentality and lifestyle. This was built using Android Studio and NetBeans in the Java language. We want to help depressed people appreciate and acknowledge all the good things they do in their daily lives. We also want to visually show what affects them most in their daily lives through bubbles on different sizes and again at the end of the week.
What it does
It identifies activities in your day through the users daily inputs and gives them feedback according to which categories they selected and their passions/frequency. It also gives weekly feedback in a collage-like-style with the more common activities being larger than activities done once a week, etc.
How we built it
Built using Android Studio, NetBeans and GitHub in the java language.
Challenges we ran into
- Spending to much time on certain aspects of the project
- Getting stuck on Android Studio errors
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The design of the application is basic and easy to navigate which was the goal.
What we learned
We learned a lot more about android studio and button tracking.
What's next for Uplift
More personalized options(based on actions and user preferences), debugging and minor design upgrades.
