Mental health is an important issue to me, and I hope that by talking about and sharing experiences, we can destigmatize negative connotations surrounding those who are affected by it.
For The Daily Californian's 2017 Mental Health special issue, I created a map that visualizes where people cry on campus, and why. The page allows users to submit their own locations and text to the map, which is added after being reviewed. As of December 9th, 2017, we have received nearly 600 responses.
In addition to the map, my co-reporter Avni Prasad and I interviewed and wrote articles about the individuals behind selected responses.
