Mind Central

Amber Molchon

According to a Microsoft Study, “84% of respondents agreed gaming has positively impacted their mental health over the past year, while 71% said gaming helped them feel less isolated.” Mind Central helps people that are dealing with mental health issues in a fun way through innovative gaming. Some of the app’s features are journaling, mood tracking with games tailored to responses, chatrooms, a place to blog and even access to professionally licensed therapists.
Mind Central helps members of the gaming community to use games as a positive way to deal with stress and anxiety. The app connects members with each other, professionals and healthy coping techniques through gaming and expression of one’s feelings. This project focused on an iterative process of user interface design and visual branding. Merch design, such as posters and t-shirts helps build community engagement.
