The Box focuses on anxiety and depression. Anxiety and depression are hugely prevalent and stigmatized mental illnesses that aren’t talked about in schools.
The goal of the project is to make anxiety and depression an open discussion within school settings and to educate people about the sources that can support a student’s mental health.
The design of The Box is intentionally clear to portray making these discussions transparent and to spike interest and participation. The Box is a portable design that can be placed anywhere.
