Educational resources for family members and friends of mentally ill teens.
Betselot, Leslie, Ody, Ally
Mentaliteen is a website that provides information about common mental illnesses in teens. A list of symptoms, signs of a mental illness in a teen, and tips on how to help a teen with a particular mental illness are included for each illness. Mentaliteen also includes a general list of tips on how to help a teen with a mental illness, as well as a list of resources for support.
While there are many resources for mentally ill teens, there are not many online-resources available for the friends and family of mentally ill teens.
To solve this issue, we decided to provide resources to help mentally ill teens in the form of a website.
One problem we faced was being able to add and change content in our code efficiently. The Ctrl-Alt shortcut, which allows you to create multiple cursors in Github, helped us overcome this problem.
