Mental health problems are just as common as any other ailments, but there is an unfortunate stigma around the subject that the Mindnosis kit hopes to help people avoid. The kit, which was created by Sara Lopez Ibanez as a graduate project for product design, gives users a simple and unintimidating self-assessment system, helping them to avoid the pain and friction points that come with seeking mental health treatment through traditional channels.
Mindnosis, which is a portmanteau of "mind" and "diagnosis", has several activities with various functions. It partially serves as a preliminary diagnosis and treatment system, letting users assess their mental state through simple diagnostic schema that are in line with modern psychological theories. It also offers commonly employed treatment techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness. The kit further comes with a crisis help sheet that has information on services and hotlines.
