Problem with std. Psychiatric evaluations

  • Makes the candidate feel insecure
  • Can induce a feeling of abnormality while taking the “test”.
  • Most candidates are not completely truthful resulting in inaccurate evaluations.
  • Candidates don’t feel relaxed in a hospital atmosphere which influences decisions made by them.

What it does

  • Gamifies psychiatric evaluations.
  • Employs a third person perspective thereby ensuring that the candidates don't feel probed.
  • Web-based & compatible with any browser. The candidate can take the test wherever they feel secure.
  • Ment-O focuses on the Rosenzweig Evaluation

Why Rosenzweig’s ?

  • Caters to the mental problems of a larger demographic.
  • Deals with depression, frustration & submission which is one of the most common mental health issues faced by adults & children alike.
  • Easy enough for the candidates to analyse themselves in case they don’t have the means to seek professional help.

Features of Ment-O

  • Monochromatic UI ensuring certain individuals won’t get triggered by the imagery.
  • Easy to use interface that caters to a wider demographic.
  • Instantaneous psychiatric evaluations.
  • Free to use & open-source.
  • Guaranteed privacy.

How I built it

Ment-O has been built using Unity & Photoshop. I did a lot of research on Rosenzweigh's frustration tests and the different types of responses & marking schemes & weighting matrices to make an algorithm that determines the user's mental state based on 3 levels - Aggression, Submission & rationality.

Challenges I ran into

  • This is my first Unity project so I spent most of my time learning C# & the basics of the Unity Editor.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

  • I didn't think I could learn Unity in such a short time by I did & also released the game.
  • I released the game! It can be played in on your browser for free!

What we learned

  • Learned the basics of Unity.
  • Learned about various mental health issues in the society & the various psychiatric evaluations that can be performed to diagnose them before it's too late.

What's next for Ment-O

  • Ment-O is open-source.
  • I plan to gamify few other types of psychiatric evaluations if all goes well.
