Mental health awareness has become an increasingly important topic over the past couple of years due the Covid-19 pandemic. Many individuals find it difficult to discuss their mental health. An individual’s mental health is a significant factor in maintaining their overall wellness. College students, specifically, face various hurdles and challenges that can affect their mental health. They have several responsibilities weighing on their shoulders which can lead to stress, depression and/or anxiety. College students may find it difficult to express these topics and seek healthy ways to cope. During the Covid-19 pandemic, additional challenges have been added onto college students by changing their lifestyles, interfering with their social interactions, and adding extra health precautions. This report describes the development and evaluation of the “Studying Alive” mobile application, which focuses on helping college students manage their stresses, schedules, tasks, and health.
