Problem Statement

Stressed girl

There has been a 13% rise in mental health conditions worldwide, with suicide the second leading cause of death among 15 to 29-year-olds.

Mental health services do not reach about
55% and 85% of people in developed and developing countries, respectively.

Most chatbots focus on only depression and autism, whereas anxiety is less targeted.


Our goal is to take care of users' stress and anxiety and motivate them in their daily life.

Research and Analysis


We started by reading research papers in order to learn about the work done in the field of mental health. Our focus areas were:

  • Algorithms and datasets in today’s healthcare

  • How sensor data can be used to determine stress/ anxiety/ panic attacks

  • How do people cope with anxiety/ stress/ panic attacks in medical/ non-medical ways

  • Issues with current applications and solutions

AI cannot replace clinical advice


Then we did the market study with 10 mobile applications  and 4 smartwatch/fitness band applications in a similar space of mental health

We learnt that most applications were non-conversational and still required users to take action and keep track of their mental health conditions by themselves

This helped us find a potential area of improvement to focus on for our project

Competitive Analysis


We conducted a survey to understand more about our users and their requirements by asking them questions like In which areas of your life have you faced mental health difficulties? or What do you do to manage stress on a daily basis? and a few more. We got 76 responses and a lot of insights from those.

We conducted 14 interviews with the users to deep dive into the problem and : 

  • Gain insights into individuals’ daily routine and habits

  • Understand individuals’ approaches to mental health/self-care

  • Understand the barriers they face in managing their mental health

SME Interview: Different methods work for different people

We mapped out what the users think and feel, say and do, hear, and see to identify the users’ pains and gains.

It helped us gain an understanding of users’ actions and behaviours and establish common ground on users’ needs.

What users didn't like?

  • Less control on how data is being used

  • Aesthetics in the watch UI

  • Missing parity in watch and mobile UI

  • Use of words that reflect the use of AI and standardize it across different flows



We created a design system that included all the common reusable components like colours and fonts as assets, all the forms of buttons including primary, secondary and text buttons, and form fields, search bars, nav bars, cards, list items and pop-ups, font styles etc. to aid in transitioning to high-fidelity prototypes. 

It helped us increase efficiency by reusing the components and also maintaining consistency.
