“You don’t have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you.” — Dan Millman
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. There is a stigma surrounding mental illness that needs to be cast away and people need to be made aware so that they seek help at the right time.
People are less receptive to ideas that are just told or shown and are more receptive to ideas that are presented in an interactive manner.
Our application is an interactive platform that is dedicated to spread awareness about mental health issues and manage mental health while building a safe community together.
To build a safe space for everyone seeking mental peace and to help them gain peace of mind and to help keep their mental health in check.
What it does
It's a portal where we've various features to help create a safe space for Mental Health!
Safe room: Here we have implemented 3d rooms with nature sounds to soothe the mind. We also have two rooms with calming animations which can be used while meditation which also has similar music in the background. I's a place to calm down and listen to the mind soothing beats and also visit various places like Beach, Forest, Calm room and even mall, an immersive experience to interact with surroundings that feel surreal! There are few animations as well which can now be controlled by a factor. In future we aim to add a heartbeat sync support. (Animations moving faster and slower according to the user's heartbeat)
Mood tracker: Here you can enter your general mood for the day, so you can analyze it and keep your health in check. If you have entered a negative mood, then a discord bot sends positive quote to your server. We've created this keeping in mind that a person if feeling down for fifteen consecutive days, is advised to visit a doctor to get further help. Moreover, User could also get motivated seeing the amazing lineup of the vibrant colors! A personal diary has also been added to keep their mood and thoughts at the same place amazingly!
-Discord Bot: It sends daily five affirmations daily to the user spreading positivity! Moreover, using sentiment analysis, whenever user logins in a negative diary entry, bot send a positive quote to the user. Adding on to that, it also suggests (Bored API) various fun activities to the user to increase engagement.
- Forum to Discuss: In today's day where Mental health is considered a taboo, there is also an essential need for people suffering to reach out and share what they're feeling. Here they can either being public or anonymously share their views on some specific topic or create some new threads and share their heart out!
-Meditate Room: A personal Zen room with radial timers to meditate!
