Steps

Improve students' creativity and mental health

 

We make mental health fun, actionable, and accessible, by providing users with insights and tools to build social confidence one step at a time... while helping their institutions support them in their journey.

Dropouts and mental health

 

Students

  • Underperform or drop out if they feel socially inadequate

  • Don’t disclose their social issues

  • Issues can worsen if not handled

Universities

  • Don’t know which preventive initiatives to make and for who
  • Or whether they work

  • Employability rating increases the need for social skills

PRESS

»Det er en del af en spændende tendens i de her år, hvor man i højere grad får trænet sociale og mentale udfordringer, inden det går galt. Vi er på vej mod en højere grad af forebyggelse frem for diagnose.«

»Studerende på RUC skal forebygge angst og dårlige mentale vaner med chatbot, der kommer med daglige råd, øvelser og opmuntringer.«

»Studerende har især høje krav til sig selv, men ofte ender urealistiske krav i et hårdt studieliv og nogle gange frafald. Det kan måske undgås, hvis de studerende får hjælp til eller mere opmærksomhed på, hvordan de klarer helt specifikke situationer i deres studieliv.«

»Vi kender jo allesammen den der følelse af første skoledag, første arbejdsdag, nyt liv, nye sociale relationer, hvor man tropper op med svedige håndflader og sådan lidt små nervøse ticks fordi man meget gerne vil passe ind  og gøre et godt indtryk - Og nu bliver det heldigvis nemmere at begynde nyt skole -og studieliv, i første omgang så gælder det de heldige studerende på Roskilde Universitet.«
