Problem Statement

Students often face high expectations from parents, teachers and peers regarding their academic achievement and social life, leading to high amounts of stress.

How can we address this unhealthy culture of comparison?

Project Description

“Just Say It!” aims to provide a platform for students to share pent-up feelings of stress and excessive unhealthy competition in a positive environment where they are given the help they need.

It is a website which provides teens with a safe platform to express their feelings and experiences, which they may not be willing to share with their parents or trusted adults. The team hopes to encourage the concept of ‘peer support’ by allowing teenagers to support themselves and give a listening ear to each other.

It’s usually through text or call if we don’t meet face to face. I really cherish my friends a lot so our calls would be as long as the whole day. Workload isn’t a big deal for me so I’m usually the one who provides help to my friends. If it’s about school, I talk to them a lot about it. It’s quite often I bring up a topic about school because I adore going to school.

This is a great idea but has the potential to be used in undesirable ways. While it is a platform for students to vent out their frustrations, there would need to be (rather strict) moderation to ensure that students are not attacking anyone, saying offensive things or revealing their personal information (which can be extremely dangerous). The ‘support’ or advice given by other students will need to be monitored and vetted as well to avoid circumstances where the already stressed student gets called names or receives harmful advice.

Great idea. Mental health comes with a great stigma and although efforts have been made to normalise it, it still is quite a touchy subject. The initial pick up of the project might face some difficulties - find some ways to get users to start (incentivising is often a good way).

In response to "How Can We Improve?"

More open-ended questions would be helpful, since your project\'s aim is to provide teens a platform to express their worries and struggles. In other words, questions which allow for elaboration beyond the immediate \'yes or no\' answer (For example: Why do you feel this way?) would give the user a chance to share more about themselves. Take the first question (about how often we share our feelings about school and workload) for instance. Apart from asking how often, one could also ask the underlying reason for refraining from sharing one\'s struggles with their loved ones afterwards (depending if the user shares that he/ she does not usually talk about their struggles). In that way, this platform would facilitate the user\'s self-reflection while also providing him/ her an opportunity to vent or share their worries! Not only that, by answering the user based on their previous responses, the platform would become more interactive and therefore more like a real human friend. And isn\'t that what this platform is aiming to be? To be a friend to the user? Hope you find the feedback useful, I just shared some thoughts that occurred to me as I did the quiz above, haha. Take care and all the best for this project!

Since the prototype is in progress, I would just comment on the idea of the project description ‘Just Say It’. I think maybe there should be adult regulators aka professional Therapist or counsellors, to ensure that the teenagers use responsible comments to other people worries and stress.

Perhaps there should be a points system whereby the more the users interact with others on the website, the more points the user earns. This is to ensure that most of whatever concerns teenagers share on that website are being heard/read and assures them that they are not alone (for example, more people encouraging (interacting with) a person who is going through a stressful time)

The website can allow users to express their feeling by words. an email to peer support or creating a forum for them to discuss the issue. Youths feeling stress due to loads of homework in school should not kept to themselves. But most importantly, they should always discuss it with their close ones (family).

Platform needs to be moderated. While the intention is good (give a space for students experiencing stress to talk to one another and share feelings), students might not be equipped with the emotional and mental maturity to respond appropriately to their peers\' comments, which might cause a \'blind leading the blind\' situation. Also, an \'unhealthy culture of comparison\' is a systemic/structural issue which you cannot solve with a comments platform, you might want to change the aim of your platform and tackle something on the micro/bottom-up level.

I really appreciate this initiative of yours. However, I am concerned that people might misuse these platforms and make it a toxic place to share their feelings. The problem is, parents and students have this huge gap that has to be bridged in order for this initiative to be more efficient. With bridging the gap , the conversations made on your platforms might lead to more disparity between two parties. So you guys could look more into that. Or maybe you can think about filtering comments on this platforms that might seem inappropriate. There are algorithms that can actually do this.

In response to "How Can We Improve?"

As we see the rise in importance of mental health, \"Just Say It\" is a great first step in helping students cope with their mental stress, and find support if they do not have any! - I feel that it will be useful to closely moderate the platform to ensure that only positive talk and vibes is flowing around the platform. This comes from the fear of having keyboard warriors coming in and poking fun and adding stress to those who are already stressed - I feel that it will be useful to have a section for parents and teachers to view the thoughts of the students. Might be anonymous if necessary, if students do not wish for their parents/teachers to know directly. This is to help them become aware and understand what their children/students are facing. To make it even more focused, it could be a page for each class of students where the students of the same class can post their concerns and the parents, form teachers and subject teachers can view and comment on the posts. - It might also be useful to educate parents/teachers on how to help their children/students cope better with stress, and help them gain awareness of how their speech/actions might directly and indirectly add to their child\'s stress. Good luck! :)

I love the idea of having peer support through a positive environment! The feeling of collaboration and being in it together can be really helpful for somebody going through a tough time. However, some thoughts you might want to keep in mind: - Many online communities tend to struggle with trolling to a certain degree. It would be good to look at those that handle it well, and learn from them in order to truly foster a \"positive\" environment from the get go. - Sometimes, stressed individuals interact with others in different ways. For example, you might be good friends with an academically strong student, but you avoid her around examination periods because talking to them gives you anxiety about your own exam preparations. How can you design your positive environment such that these \"flashpoint\" or touchy topics don\'t create more negative feelings, while still allowing for individuals to destress through sharing? - The issue of verification would be something you might want to keep in mind as well. Hand in hand with trolling is the issue of holding individuals accountable for their online actions, and proper verification would help substantially in creating a safe environment for people to share. Cheers, looking forward to great stuff from the team :)

I am wondering how youths can help one another if everyone is just there to vent their pent up frustrations. Would there be a moderator or facilitator for this platform so that it does not just end up as a complain outlet or just another forum?

I think that certified psychologists and councillors should be included as a stakeholder in this project to moderate the website. After all, they have the expertise to coach and advice users. This is not saying that they should be the one giving advice per-say, but perhaps intervene when the advice given by other users are incorrect or potentially harmful towards the individual asking for advice.

At the same time think about why you vent, are you looking or craving for an answer or an understanding, if it is the latter then think how do you make the people feel heard, cause mere posting will not let them feel heard. It just give them the space to do so. Personally i feel reiteratimg back the narrative extremely useful Hope this helps

try expressing it through writing. sometimes, verbal expression may not work out for everyone. get a journal, take a pen & take it all out on that lined piece of paper.

We don’t share because of judgements. We often get judged or given rather unfair comments like we didn’t work hard enough. When actually we did work very hard. To do better, we could try pen it down somewhere or talk to a “safe” person like school counsellor or there’s something like a virtual self help chat/text line too. We need an outlet or else it’s not healthy.

The site will definitely require moderators and monitoring, otherwise it will become a toxic environment, such as Tumblr. Will the Youth/Student be able to get referral to a Mental Health Professional if required/desired?

Hopefully to have a counsellor or senior taking a \'mentor\' role moderating the platform / website - I would hope that if I do get a reply, either from peers or someone else more objective after I post a comment on the stress faced... and some steps to chat more (or seek help) or get over it.

Student should have self expectation and motivation towards the academic. Academy should deliver the important of the subject content and understanding instead of judging only by the score or result.

i believe catching on the fact that friends are our most often pillars of support is great! however, it can be concerning when we share too much with friends who may be struggling themselves. hence, it is important to make sure the platform is moderated in a way where it will not become counterproductive.

A platform solely dedicated to rants on societal expectations is bound to devolve quickly into toxicity. Positive reinforcement techniques should be incorporated, such as educating individuals on ways to either achieve said expectations or ignore them.

The project can be further improved by having functions that can detect words or phrases that are obvious signs of extreme stress and poor mental well-being. By having such functions, we are able to identify individuals that require more help and assistance. Afterward, the individual can be directed to a professional counsellor or health expert so that they would be properly treated. Maintaining the platform using such functions can allow students to communicate with each other healthily and will be able to instill a supportive relationship with users.

I like the idea of using a platform to connect youths to support one another through life\'s difficulties. perhaps for the youth peer supporters - there could be training on mental health first aid techniques. also, there could be a function where youths can choose to be anonymous. Lastly, to get youths to know about the platform, perhaps publicity could be done with the secondary schools, universities, JCs, polys and ITEs. I understand that there are a few existing groups that run a similar platform/youth peer support system - perhaps it might be helpful to speak to these existing groups/organizations to learn from their experience of running such a platform.

I am constantly stressed whenever i am studying or when school semester starts. What is consoling is that i meet up with my friends to do tutorial together and submit the same answer for grading. If one get the uestion wrong, we are ll in it together. This helps to reduce some stress because my friends help to spread and share the load.

1. This is a worthwhile project, but you need to be mindful of trust and safety considerations that may arise. For example, if someone posts that their suicidal, there may be a risk of contagion. Also consider how you might deal with cyber-bullying and other forms of negative online behavior. What kinds of moderation will you put in place on your platform? What types of community standards and norms will you set out, and how will you nudge users towards positive conduct? 2. Sharpen your unique value proposition by explaining specifically how your platform will contrast with existing social media sites, which many teenagers already use as a way to ventilate their emotions. 3. Think about what intervention you may include on your platform to facilitate healthy expressions of emotion. For example, consider the inclusion of a mood meter, or a emotion vocabulary list, in order to foster socio-emotional learning and expand users\' emotional capacity.

In this present world, I feel there are lot of platforms where one can hide their identity and discuss about their issues to a complete stranger and get some help. Sometimes listening ears are better than just talking mouth. I feel most of these issues require one to one consultation rather than a group discussion. If such a platform to provide both group and in person discussions are provided then it might be better.

Generally, the concept of the website sounds good. Teens might be more willing to share their frustrations with each other if they know their audience is made up of people going through the same or will not judge them. Not feeling alone is one of the most important points of maintaining good mental health. I don’t know the extent that your team has planned, but I want to stress that it is important for the website to be easily accessible. Youths nowadays are on mobile much more than their computers. How can you ensure that they would take time to visit the website? It is also important for the site to have enough publicity. Seeing as it runs fundamentally on input from users (i.e. students), you’re gonna need a larger userbase for the site to be successful. It might also be worthwhile allowing users an option to post anonymously, for those who are afraid of disclosing their identity. Good luck team! :)

The project description is crisp and summarise the key points of the project. It could be beneficial for students and teens to have a chance to speak to someone of their age and maturity. Here are few factors to consider in the project, 1. The website could need various forms of marketing such as Instagram and TikTok for it to reach the students. 2. The website need to provide privacy to students who are willing to share their opinions and there can be admins to moderate the posts and opinions appropriate to the students. 3. The website can contain sections for students of different ages such as secondary school, JC, poly and university. This could provide a better and relatable opinions of other students and teens. Overall, good job in choosing and working on this interesting topic.

Timely moderation has to be in place in order to prevent cyber bullying from happening and/or improper use of the website. If students share their concerns on the platforms, based on the premise that there are no adults present, who is going to provide them the help/support they need?

As much as an online platform would be nice in allowing youth to anonymously discuss the issues they are facing, there are areas that the team should be careful of. Without proper constant moderation, discussions may become unhealthy and the platform may no longer be a safe space if they become flooded with inappropriate comments such as those seen on confession pages.

Split students based on similar levels, schools and courses. Those who are stressed can get help from other teens who are of similar age, same schools and even studying the same courses as them. This way, the stressed teens can receive \'peer support\' that is more targeted and relatable towards them as those providing help can understand them better (e.g., seniors from the same course/school) as they\'ve been through the modules before and can provide tips on how to cope with the stress.

We can promote the idea that academics is not everything, I guess students are stressed because they feel the pressure of \"what happens if I didn\'t do well for Os/As?\" especially in Singapore because academics is something highly prioritised.

There are actually many platforms online where one can share about their feelings, including stress from academics. However, the bigger issue to tackle for such platforms will be: How are they being regulated? How \"proper\" is the advice from their fellow peers who are teenagers? Perhaps you can share more about how this platform can be different from other platforms e.g. reddit, or quora where people are able to post and receive replies anonymously. And how the threads can be regulated such that improper advice that may be detrimental to a stressed-out peer can be removed. Other things to take note could include what happens when the post contains something that should be highlighted to higher authorities such as things relating to suicidal intent or complaints of a \'named\' teacher/parent? One suggestion is to also include a tab where healthcare professionals can post up topical tips such as \"5 ways to improve mental wellbeing in a stressful home environment\" so that peers who use this platform are able to gain knowledge from a trusted knowledgeable other.

We can improve by taking control of the situation one problem at a time. If we listen first and respond later, it will actually work out well. This can mean things such as not cutting through a sentence when someone maybe be screaming at you and such. Plus, split the workload as organised as possible, and destroy your problems one by one. To overcome problems, Be Smart ; Act Dumb. And here’s how we can use that! Approach someone you really know, and if that person is the one causing problems, unless they are family, be smart and let yourself know they are not worth using up your time, and if you think through maybe you might figure out who are the reason the problem is caused and you can have a new take on the situation by reflecting on yourself and how you can overcome it. Act “Dumb” when it requires you to, by putting your self strategically and smartly into a position where anything another person or problem can hurt you is when they or it do(es) something wrong, use it wisely to get out of tough situations, or when it comes to problems you can’t control. Don’t feel guilty because acting dumb at the perfect time, is the smart way to overcome the problem. Don’t stay back, push forward! If it comes to studies there are many methods to getting over problems. Students may often cause problems themselves by complaining that exams exist, and as it’s a problem that’s not in our control we can save time by focusing on the problem itself and how we can overcome it and in this case studying smart. Don’t study for the sake of studying, especially if you are studying towards a goal of your interests. Instead, we should spend time organising how we can study smart, and COMMIT to the plan, and make sure the plan is reasonable to ourselves if not we will feel guilty if the plan is not feasible and we don’t manage to finish it. Timers, such as work, break, work break apps really work, trust me. And this app that I have been using a lot really helps, where you can set own intervals and block websites and apps when the timer is on its work interval, made by an amazing developer called Micheal Tigas! https://focusedwork.app/ As a student myself, who has gone through many problems and survives them, I feel you guys. Good luck for your studies too!

One small detail which may or may not be helpful, is adding categories to the website where students can select whatever applies to them to them, and they would be categorised to a certain channel with people of similar issues, where they can understand each other better. Idk this is just a small suggestion. But yeah this is a really innovative concept!!

I recommend clearly thinking about the user experience in terms of how much they believe the anonymity of the website. If they dont believe that what they are saying will not be forwarded to their parents or whoever they are unwilling to share these feelings with, then they will have no incentive to provide honest answers.

Apart from giving a safe platform to encourage stressed teens to share their concerns with “peers”, I believe that there should be specific criteria on who can provide sound advices on the platform. Careful consideration should be made on the eligibility of people who can join the community, an example I can think of is that there should be a basic test (to ensure that joiners have empathy, positive intentions, etc) where interested parties can take and would be required to pass prior to joining the community.

I think its a good idea to introduce a specialised platform like this to directly address pressing psychological stresses on students. Looking from the \"Project Description\" and \"Problem Statement\", I have a few pointers to share: - With the important need to prioritise a comfortable open-spaced sharing environment, i think it\'ll be great to have different communication platforms in the website. For example, text message with a particular individual, open-posting of problems to all eligible members, video/voice calls etc. This will help to give your users a variety of options to work with based on their personal preferences. - how \"safe\" will the platform be? who are the ones attending to your users? is it possible that they use these stories or problems against your genuine users? will there be any sort of screening done to acquire these \"peer supporters\"? - To better cater to your users, i think it\'d be great if there is a detailed form that users can fill in to allow the \"peer supporters\" to better understand their predicament before consulting them. This helps to give the \'supporters\' a clear picture of the situation, and give targetted advice or words to encourage your users. - in your problem statement there\'s mention of the need to \"address the unhealthy culture of comparison\", is there any solution to directly address the high expectation brought up from parents, teachers and peers onto students? This is something worth considering as this is essentially the root cause of the problem. If this cause can be resolved or improved, it will reduce the severity of the cause-and-effect situation in your topic of research.
