The Cultivated Mindset

A single app that helps people share and obtain advice on all of life's topics easily and effectively, all in one platform. The vision of the app is inspired by other mobile app mental health services like Headspace and Better Health, where you can access services online. The app is geared towards people who want to engage in mental health services but can't afford it, do not have the time for it, can't find a provider, and would prefer to receive advice and wisdom from people within their community.  


Oftentimes people want to seek out advice and wisdom from others without judgement and do not have access to mental health services, can't afford mental health services, or want to receive instant support. 

Research & Ideation

I mapped the available solutions for advisement and mental health platforms. Then, I interviewed relevant communities who use those services regularly, and conducted user surveys to get a broader perspective. I analyzed the available online and mobile mental health platforms to understand the conventional structures, and to map the tools and aspects that could be applicable to the current platform and summarized my findings and marked the aspects I could incorporate into the platform for better solutions.

With the findings I brainstormed possible solutions, tools and features I would like the app to have in order to improve the available mental health and advice-seeking services, and to create an accessibility-first interface. I started with quick sketches, completed corrections and additions, and tested each iteration along the way.

Initial Sitemap





I finalized the structure and design of the app and concentrated them into the most relevant and useful activities: seeking and providing advice easily in one place, effectively browsing for available advice topics, easy and smooth navigation between advice seeking and advice sharing interactions. 

Overall, I was satisfied with the results achieved within the limited timeframe. This is just the beginning for the app, and a little taste of the potential it will have. I hope in the future that I can continue to develop it, expand its abilities, and form a complex system to cater to all the needs a platform of this up-and-coming nature would require.
