Jain Taking On Mental Health Issues For Gen Z And Millennials
MSE student Ananya Jain founded Georgia Institute of Technology’s ‘FullCircle’ in 2017, with a mission to find more resilient ways to harvest renewable energy. Since then, their mission has expanded to tackle mental health concerns, stigma and lack of resources amongst students. Jain and her team have created a mental health video game, with more than seven countries including the USA, UK, India, Canada and others to build new technologies and tackle government related legislation, and most recently are looking at how they can support students affected by Covid-19 through technology. Jain also uses her own voice and personal experiences to inspire others. Her TEDx Talk How Creative Thinking Saved My Life is a fascinating look at how she adapted to survive life's challenges, and how igniting and sustaining the creative spark inside of us can enrich everyone's life experiences.
