Student Mental Health Link and Athlete Mental Health Link Apps - Empowering Mental Wellness


Our American customer: Cutler Wellness Programs aimed at providing a platform for mental wellness support for athletes and students alike. With a dedication to breaking mental health stigma and increasing literacy, CWP wanted to target two distinctive groups: Athlete and Student.

CWP recognizes that mental wellness is a fundamental aspect of academic and professional success which is nevertheless often neglected due to stigma, lack of knowledge of the available resources or simply due to lack of dedicated platform.


To address these issues CWP asked us to develop apps that provide strategies, resources, and connections with peers and other athletes across the nation, putting mental health knowledge and support at their fingertips.

The development and implementation of the Student MH LINK and Athlete MH LINK apps involved close collaboration with our customer who already had a broad knowledge and experience in this field but needed our input in translating this info a functional and simple environment. Thorough testing and refinement processes were conducted to optimize the apps for usability, reliability, and performance across diverse environments.
