PTSD-Assist was a 13 week term-long project in participatory design. My partner and I worked with a group of 4 firefighters from Surrey’s Hall 11 to find an opening in which we could design a product or service to serve them.
Our product was PTSD-assist, a mobile and web application to connect firefighters and other first-responders with peer mentors. This was important because of the prevalent negative social stigma within the first-responder community and general population, and also because of the complicated and difficult nature of receiving treatment.
My role was visual design, animation, and video, while the concept and UX was done collaboratively.
