Hackathon for Depression

hackathon

Hackathon to create awareness for Depression in Immigrant and Refugee communities. Hosted by 1951 Coffee, and Thon X

It was an amazing twelve hour workspace. Where folks from multiple disciplines came together to work on tackling a cause- increasing awareness around Depression in Immigrant and Refugee communities. There were so many great ideas and lots of passion in the room.

Before the participants got to work, they volunteered to engage in a demonstration of the RICHER model. The participants volunteered to share some work that reflect how they felt. This is the pre and post reflection of how they felt in their mind, body and spirit.

Below is a word bible that summarized the expression of the participants pre and post the session
