The Sound of Phobia
Social anxiety is the third largest mental health problem in the world, affecting about 7% of the population. Many people don’t know how to treat their own or others’ social anxiety. The aim of this project is to increase the public’s awareness and understanding of social anxiety and help people who have this problem try to deal with it.
To achieve this goal I came up with three deliverables: an app, a website and a brochure. Since it might be hard for people with social anxiety to communicate with others face to face, I developed an app where they can talk with others anony-mously. The website provides information about events off-line and encourages users to eventually meet each other. The brochure with an introduction and tips is for the public in order to let more people to become aware of this problem.
