The course is ID Studio 4: Design for Health INDS 3004.

The problem as identified in the project brief was: 

Mental Health supports come in a variety of responses, one of which is Service Animals. Policy and legislation around these animals is vague and confusing in Ontario. Because of this people who rely on Service Animals for PTSD, anxiety, autism and other (often invisible) health conditions are often refused entry with their Service Animals to transit/travel providers, retail locations and restaurants etc. To further the problem, some people see the gap in legislation to 'fake' Service Animals needs by buying vests and cards online, and provide these as their proof of need.

The students were tasked to investigate the ecosystem around Service Animals as related to mental health, and to provide both service and product responses.

20/20—from retrospect to prospect, a participatory Design Wo/ManiFesT.O. for the next decades Design is both an evolving and evocative creative process permeating all aspects of social, economic, and political life, and it is shifting the way our city operates, and functions. With human-centred values and diverse perspectives, advocacy, and calls to action, we are collectively and individually changing the social and physical fabric of Toronto, often with design as the catalyst.
