Mental health issues

Mental health describes one's state of mind, the ability to cope with the day to day activities of life. 1 in 4. That’s how many people suffer from mental health issues, so in a class of 30 at least 7 students are suffering and some will likely suffer in silence.

In a fast paced era, many individuals have described loneliness, feeling overwhelmed and being unable to cope because of several different factors; some including social media, family dynamics and feeling a sense of purposeless.

Anxiety and depression are the most common mental health issues and delivering anxiety help or depression help to those at need means we must address the root causes such as loneliness.

HFNE’s Mental health Mission

We are on a mission to equipp children and young adults with the skills needed to look after their mental health in a proactive way rather than reactive.

We want to power a new generation of young adults through technology: who don't suffer in silence but rather seek mental health help when needed and stay proactive about their mental health so we may reduce the amount of people suffering from anxiety, depression and loneliness through technology.

HFNE’s approach to mental health issues

About HFNE

The HFNE( Half Full Not Empty) charity is made up of a group of millennials wanting to make an impact on society. We champion the narrative of being proactive about looking after one’s mental health, instead of reactive.

What we do

We provide anxiety help, depression help and a solution to loneliness. We tackle these topics through our self help app, a community managed by licensed counsellors, purpose built video content for schools, mental health workshops and licensed online counsellors for those who need anxiety help and depression help.

We do not only address what to do when negative feelings begin to surface but we highlight what can be done to prevent negative feelings from arising in the first place.

Who we work with

We work with schools and corporate organisations to support young adults

Our work with organisations also provides students with access to a wide pool of opportunities, in order to provide them with a sense of direction, so that they can feel fulfilled.

Our Therapists are all accredited counsellors, psychologists or psychological therapists trained up to PhD level or equivalent using clinically proven methods

Our Anxiety, loneliness & depression help app

We built and maintain an anxiety help and depression help app which provides self help tools which allow you to be more proactive about your mental health by monitoring it through a mood diary and taking part in short exercises which help you better manage your mental health. We also provide on demand online counselling by certified mental health counsellors for those dealing with anxiety, depression or loneliness.

We don't just stop there, we work with you to ensure you follow your therapists recommended plan to get you feeling better.

Our anxiety help, loneliness and depression app also has a closed community where you can interact with other people, share ideas, offer help and share your thoughts anonymously if you wish. The community is monitored by licensed therapists who are there to provide any help you may need or someone to just talk to.

Our mental wellbeing content

We build content which is distributed to hundreds of schools across the UK and reaches thousands of students each week. Our content is purposeful and equips children with the skills they need to realise life's difficult moments, wade through them and seek help

Our content is made to emphasise, equip and educate children on signs, symptoms and general scenarios which they may eventually run into in life.

We show them the what, how and why in a manner that is non intrusive and allows them to be incredibly equipped to help them selves or potentially a friend suffering from depression, loneliness or anxiety.

From concept to words, our content takes on average 3 weeks to complete as it requires coordination between several parties to ensure the right message is being sent out.

Who is involved in the content creation process? a psychologist, a visual designer, an animator, a storyboard writer and a mental health therapist.

At Huawei, we believe that technology has the power to make anything possible – which is why Juanita’s entry really impressed the judging panel.
