Hackathon for Depression


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

The Kids Fit Life Fall Program has invited The Uzo Method Project to facilitate some dance movements with the youth at the YWCA on October 26th 2013.

“The HAPPY organization’s mission is to improve the health and wellness of Arizona youth and families through education, outreach, and advocacy about proper nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices.  And, while we work to improve health and fitness conditions for all children, we have a particular concern for under-served, at-risk, and obese youths”.
