Teenagers in the age of 13 – 18 are exposed to emergency and distress situations due to excessive consumption of alcohol, illegal drugs, violence and sexual assaults. In this age, the teenager’s privacy is very important for them. They are too embraced and afraid that their parents will be exposed to their risky behavior and therefore in time of distress, will not ask for any kind of help and of course will not call the medical or police emergency services. Instead they are trying to deal with the situation by themselves but with no success. They feel helpless and that there is nothing they can do.
Therefore, this reservation caused the teens, in time of distress, to be exposed and venerable to sexual assaults and all the way to a life-threatening situations
We believe that there is a solution for them and therefore based on the need and together with the teenagers we created Chill.
“Chill” is an holistic solution based on a smartphone app that allows the user, in just one click, to call for an “unformal” “big brother” support to arrive on site and in real time.
When the user click the app for emergency, the responders on call – (2 students a bot and a girl in the age of 21 – 28 “Chillers”) which have undergone the appropriate training, will get the call and arrive on site in a matter of minutes. Once they are there the Chillers will assist the teenager in all that may be necessary in the relevant situation keeping his / her privacy. If the situation is worsening the Chillers will alert and notify the relevant emergency services in order to ensure the teenager safety.
