Abstract

The objective of this project is to produce a mobile application to assist those living with mental health issues through simple lifestyle interventions. The will be developed with the government campaign ‘The Little Things’. This campaign pushes the idea that little things make a big difference when it comes to your mental health. The app will deal with the different areas of ‘The Little Things’ campaign.

The app will help its users to try and enjoy a healthier lifestyle by attempting to improve their diet, social life and fitness. All these subjects are attributed to mental health problems which the app will try and address.

The apps primary features include a chatroom feature that allows the user to create chatrooms about the different topics revolving around mental and interact with other users about their personal experiences.

A mindfulness feature has been implemented in the app in order to help users in times of stress. Mindfulness has been proven to help people in terms of mental health. There has been three mindfulness tracks added to the app.
- SOS
This is a track that helps the user relax if they’re stressing out or having a panic attack.
- Meditation
Mindfulness meditation has been proven to help people that do it once a day to improve their mental health
- Sleep

The sleep track simply helps people that have trouble sleeping to fall asleep with more ease.

A fitness feature has been added to the app to inform people about different fitness plans and also allowing the users to create their own fitness plans.

A mental health quiz was added to the app to help people learn more about mental health in a fun and engaging way.
