The newest challenge taking the app by storm is the #15minutes4me test, where users answer a series of questions and post their personalised results in a TikTok video.
The beginning of November is not starting with yet another dance trend like how WAP by Cardi B took over the summer. This time, the 15 Minutes Test challenge addresses mental health issues and encourages its users to check up on their friend once in a while to make sure they are ok.
This challenge shows perfectly how social media can be used to spread awareness and positivity, especially since cyber bullying is a huge problem.
The #15minutes4mechallenge currently has over 1.1 million views on TikTok.
The 15minutes4me challenge explained
The challenge sees users posting their results from the website 15minutes4me.com. It shows 3 scales, labelled as ‘stress’, ‘depression’ and ‘anxiety’. Each scale displays the percentage that the participant is experiencing currently.

Participants answer the multiple choice questions with answers varying from ‘not at all’ to ‘very much or most part of the time’, depending on how much they relate to the statement shown.
The TikTok’s are accompanied by a slowed down version of James Arthur’s song ‘Train Wreck’.
The free test includes questions such as ‘I found it hard to wind down’ and ‘I found it difficult to work up the initiative to do things’.
At the end of the test, there is an option to buy the self help program for €55.00, for one month of daily 15 minutes of guidance.
