Mental Wellness & Cancer

Cancer patients face substantial challenges — including depression, anxiety and insomnia — that can affect their mental health and commitment to treatment. To address this need, Blue Note Therapeutics engaged ArtCenter to develop a Sponsered Project—one of the College's signature academic programs designed to bring industry partners into the classroom to engage students in design thinking around current and future initiatives and ideas. The resulting course equipped us to build a digital, FDA-approved device that allows oncologists to prescribe mental health care in a way that engages more patients. The success of this project led to a part time job with Blue Note Therapeutics.

We know that cancer can make us feel helpless and anxious. While we cannot take away the uncertainty that comes with it,

We hope that Agora helps us regain a sense of agency and positivity through this journey.
