What’s on your mind?
An enormous amount of students experience mental health issues. This is not surprising when you consider all the problems that our generation has to deal with. From student debts to rising prices and from the idealistic environment from social media to the performance pressure of our society.
We have created an environment where everything must be perfect and failure is not an option. But what if we told each other that things weren’t going so well? What would it be like if we showed ourselves from our vulnerable side? Is it okay to not feel mentally well?
With my project ‘What’s on your mind?’ I have created a digital platform where students with mental health problems can communicate with each other. With this platform, I hope to encourage students to tell their stories, but more importantly, to connect with each other.
