MENTAL HEALTH AMERICA – Screening Tool
MHA Screening Tool is an innovative, interactive online space where individuals find tools they can use after screening to learn about and improve their mental health. Users ought to take one of nine screens: depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, psychosis, eating disorder, or substance use disorder. This tool offers customized results to help-seeking individuals.

MHA Screening Tool redesign is scheduled to launch January 2021.

Designing an accessible color system

Through the work MHA Screening Tool and its collected data, it was concluded that users can navigate with more ease when presented with patterns vs. images

I developed a color system and pattern system that helps with navigation as well as guiding the users to the appropriate content for each demographic.

These colors not only ensure that users with color blind conditions can differentiate colors but they each WCAG 2.0 Level AA, which requires a contrast ratio of at least 4.5:1 when applied to normal text(16 pt) and 3:1 for large text (22pt), as well as contrast ratio of at least 3:1 for graphics and user interface components (such as form input borders) reaching WCAG 2.1
