Before going to college, business administration senior Sophia Shapiro was diagnosed with several eating disorders, as well as anxiety and depression. With few people talking about their mental health issues, Shapiro felt no one else was going through what she was.
It wasn’t until she began posting on social media about her journey that she realized she was not alone.
When computer engineering senior Alyssa Liu left for college, her little sister gave her a shoe box filled with letters. Each letter had instructions for when she was supposed to open it; one was for when she missed home, another for when she got her first bad grade. Whenever Liu was feeling down or overwhelmed, she turned to the shoebox for comfort.
That shoebox became the inspiration for Foveo, an app that Liu and her team are working on developing as their senior project to help college students who suffer from mental illness.
Cal Poly has reported 1,015 positive COVID-19 cases as of Monday, Jan. 11., and many students that live on campus have already experienced quarantine or isolation.
Mustang News put out a poll on our instagram asking students to rate their mental health on a scale from 0-100. The poll received over 400 responses, with 124 of them rating their mental health at zero. The overall average rating was less than 50.
