Arizona State University Changemaker Innovation Challenge has announced ARKHumanity as the grand prize winner of $10,000 seed money. ARKHumanity is a technology that scans Twitter for specific messages used by people in suicide crisis and connects the originator of the post with a trained volunteer and/or behavioral health expert for immediate support.

Compelled by the fact that one person dies by suicide every 13.3 minutes, the creators of ARKHumanity believe that simply responding to a person in distress as an indication that someone hears them and is concerned for their well-being can be life saving. ARKHumanity extends this effort further by connecting people to resources such as a lifeline chat or hotline which can help mitigate immediate risk and plan for further treatment.

The $10,000 prize from Changemaker Challenge will be used to help develop the technology’s infrastructure and to introduce it to local, state and national organizations at conferences.

This Changemaker Innovation Challenge was an excellent step taken by the university. After getting some, I was able to put time aside for some quality assignment help as well. That left me with some innovative ideas, which I'm not willing to disclose yet.
