For designers, the mental health space is a difficult one to reach. Hundreds of apps flood the app store offering to cure depression, bipolar disorder, and other behavioral health issues. But few are clinically tested or have proven their validity. That’s why Mad*Pow is hosting a Designing for Mental Health Workshop.
At Mad*Pow we want more for the world of mental health. We want designers with health knowledge and an understanding of the challenges that people who struggle with mental health deal with every day.
Experience Strategist Jen Smerdel and I are hosting a workshop on Designing for Mental Health. This workshop is part of an ongoing initiative. You can view our mental health design guidelines as well.
