Examples include reporting bullying, asking for academic help and for neurodiverse students: requesting temporary relief from an overwhelming environment... all with out the associated attention, stigma and targeting that comes with public problem raising.

Barney: “My cat died yesterday, and I wish I wasn’t here. I don’t feel like talking to anyone, or answering questions.”
Barney inputs his emotion into the watch. He selects the sad emoji and sends it to Mr Harris.
Mr Harris gets a notification on his watch that he can discreetly check while teaching.
The notification says Barney is feeling sad.
After class is done, Mr. Harris pulls Barney aside to ask if he would like to talk about his feelings.
