ID Studio 4: Design for Health INDS-3004 Exhibit


A display of student prototypes, strategies and ecosystem diagrams around mental health and Service Animals will be on display for the month of December in the 5th and 6th floor display cases. The students have created a variety of responses to this issue, and have done some fantastic work!

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.
