"We have chosen to tackle mental health and mental health awareness. We chose to focus on this problem because we feel it is important to help those with mental health and to make sure everyone has a better understanding of those who have mental disabilities."

"Mental disorders don't just affect the person with the mental disorder; it also affects those around them. UTime can also be used as a method of learning about mental disorders and understanding more about them. If more people had a better understanding of what it was like to live with a mental disorder, they would be more caring and kinder."

'Our idea is a service: it's a mental health app, teaching people about awareness and improving how people think with mental health. You play games using a chosen avatar, and that information will be recorded and given to behavioural scientists and neurologists to study the way a person with mental health thinks through neuroplasticity, a way to rewire the brain."
