your personal toolbox for mental health
Checked In is dedicated to bringing about meaningful and impactful change in mental wellbeing on college campuses through increasing awareness, accessibility and emotional intelligence.
THE MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS
Across America, mental health among college students has reached a breaking point. Faced with unprecedented challenges from technological development and societal pressures, Gen Z students aren't receiving the support that they deserve. This has caused an explosion in the number of students struggling with their own mental wellbeing, creating a crisis that can only be halted by providing students with the knowledge and tools to improve their mental health.
“I think the main problem is that students don’t feel like they have enough time to meaningfully engage with resources”
- Harvard student
WHAT WE DO
Checked In is an application that increases emotional intelligence whilst streamlining the connection between students, peers, and resources.
For busy college students who struggle to make time for their mental health, identifying emotions can be a persistent struggle. Thus, our application seeks to develop emotional intelligence through research-informed methods, empowering students to engage with their mental health.
In addition, Checked In both streamlines and provides various resources to break down the culture of stigma surrounding mental health on college campuses and create positive student communities.
WHO WE ARE
Checked In is a student-led team looking to revolutionize the way mental wellbeing is approached on college campuses.
As students who contend with and understand the needs of our peers, we find ourselves in the best position to bring about meaningful, impactful change to the college mental health systems. Students are exposed to many social, academic and time pressures that often mean mental wellbeing is left at the wayside. Our own experiences with these struggles have made us passionate about our journey to find a better, more convenient solution to promote mental wellbeing for students.
