DO IT DAY BOURNEMOUTH

DIGITAL

HACKATHON

MENTAL HEALTH

DATE TO BE CONFIRMED

Partnered with the Drum, Do It Day is designed to be a movement that encourages the creative and digital industry to make a real difference for real world challenges. In its second year, we will be hosting a one day “fringe” Hackathon to combat the stigma that surrounds mental health in children.

 

Mental health issues have never been higher in children with half of all problems manifesting at the age of 14. Prevention is key and through Do It Day 2019, we aim to open up the conversation and raise awareness further on how various factors influence mental wellbeing in children such as:

  • Tech addiction

  • Child obesity

  • LGBT

  • Changing family situations

  • Cyber bullying

  • Learning difficulties

With the help of the attendees skills (and we want all skills) coupled together with a meaningful brief, anyone involved will be instrumental in raising awareness and helping build something that could really change someones world.

Not only is the day a day of doing, we will also be inviting speakers to talk about their lived experience of mental health. These speakers will detail why it is so important to talk about mental health, and how it has effected their lives. The speakers names will be announced closer to the event.
