Wellness of the mind and mental balance are two things that many people struggle with today, and building a mobile app can create a catalyst to a future solution for this complex problem. The app DiscoverMe creates a reference point for those who need a moment to breathe in their hectic life.

The goal of DiscoverMe is to create a connection inside oneself, hoping that one day, with the help of our app, that the user could lead to a start in better mental well-being.
