Mental Health & Humor Genome

One of the main problems that the Humor Genome Project currently has is interacting large scale with the Georgia Tech community. I believe that with Tech’s recent focus on mental health and suicide prevention the Humor Genome Project may be able to interact with the school administration to build some sort of comic relief for students. It has been proven in multiple studies that humor positively affects humans mental health and general well being. Because of this, I think that the project could serve as an avenue for students to get relief from studying and finals. Although the project is not large scale now, once the team is up and running it could be possible to collaborate with students who are interested in comedy, as well as actual comedians and releasing the finds of the team’s studies. Whether it be through events hosted on campus, or open sessions of the class that other students could come to.
