Don't fear! 

Hackathons may seem scary, but they are great opportunities to learn, network, and implement some of your favorite ideas! 

Here are some recommended links about hackathons:

If you're not a coder, you can get involved on a team by advising, helping prepare the final presentation, or writing copy for the site! 

Additionally, HackMentalHealth will host the following sessions:

  • A pitch session, where participants can pitch ideas and join teams.
  • A Beginning Coder Workshop, for people with no experience to learn how to code for the first time! 
  • A slack channel for participants to message each other and form teams prior to the event.
