Lumohacks Hackathon

Made an Android app that provides a virtual companion for people with depression and/or anxiety by using some of cognitive behavioral therapy’s approaches by intervening their thoughts and behaviors for their betterment. The user is able to communicate with the companion by telling it how they’re feeling and getting personalized responses and advice based on a database that maps feelings to suggestions. The app also contains a to-do list that motivates the user to do certain tasks, and when completed, it gives them positive affirmations using a point system.
