A recent study indicated that in April 2020, ~14% of US adults reported symptoms of severe psychological distress vs. 3.9% in 2018. Now that we all know what living in the COVID-19 era is like and how differently it affects others, we, hand-in-hand with our collaborators at AARPIBMSASTwilioHeadspace, and many more are pleased to invite you and your colleagues to this Hackathon to find ways that technology can help mitigate some of the social and mental health effects of this pandemic, in particular on isolated communities.

Submissions will run from July 3, to July 12th -- Starting the 3rd, participants will be able to consult with our panel of experts from social and health nonprofits during scheduled open office hours. Public companies and startups with expertise in software programming, machine learning, design, and hardware will also be on call to help them build solutions.
