I am making an interactive environment that allows young people in Taiwan to share stories about their depression or anxiety in order to combat stigmas about mental health.


LifeShare is an interactive application that creates a safe Augmented Reality environment where people experiencing depression or anxiety can both get help and also help others in Taiwan. For people who are depressed and anxious, this is a place that people can share their experience anonymously. By telling stories, and listening to other people’s stories, individuals can develop a support system. This can alleviate the feeling of loneliness. After all, sometimes talking changes everything.
