Creating a Compelling Character to Aid Latinas with Depression and Anxiety

UCLA School of Nursing

Imagining how a compelling story could ignite interest in a topic that is often considered taboo, MarySue Heilemann, professor at the UCLA School of Nursing, set out to create such a project to attract English-speaking Latinas with elevated symptoms of depression and anxiety. The idea was to make the story accessible via a smartphone or computer because it would be convenient and private. The goals were to create easy ways for women to engage in educational and therapeutic features to enhance their awareness that help for their symptoms exists; to boost their confidence that they could seek help for themselves; and to encourage them to connect with a hotline, clinic or other resources.
