Talk, the New Sex Ed

The 5 students of the Talk team stand side by side at the MHCI farewell party

Demand for the Pittsburgh-based program Talk: The New Sex Ed has outpaced the organization's ability to provide it, so this capstone team was tasked with creating a digital version of the program. In order to provide a judgment-free space where where teens can learn to navigate information about sex and what it means to make healthy lifestyle choices, the MHCI students proposed a narrative based intervention using text messaging as the primary medium they called Chat Fiction.
