We created Serenity Now to provide people with a safe and supportive space to talk about their mental health. We were inspired by the power of technology to connect people and by the growing need for mental health services in our society as well a large growth in AI, more specifically language based models.

What it does

Serenity Now is a mental health chatbot powered by Chat GPT that provides moral support and helps users identify the root causes of their feelings. Users can share their thoughts and feelings with the chatbot and receive kind words of encouragement, as well as personalized questions to help them gain insight into their emotions.

How we built it

Building Serenity Now was a challenge as we were learning Django from scratch. We built the chatbot using the Chat GPT API and integrated it with a user-friendly chat interface. We also designed the chatbot's conversational flow to provide a supportive and non-judgmental experience for users.

Challenges we ran into

One of the biggest challenges we faced was learning Django, which was necessary for building the web application. We also had to work to create a conversational flow that felt natural and engaging for users, and ensure that the chatbot's responses were sensitive and appropriate to each user's unique situation.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We're proud of creating a chatbot that can provide real support and comfort to people who need it. We're also proud of overcoming the challenges of learning Django and designing a conversational flow that is both empathetic and effective in helping users gain insight into their emotions.

What we learned

Through building Serenity Now, we learned new frameworks such as Django and how to implement language models. We were also able to develop an understanding for the value of designing conversational interfaces that are both natural and supportive. We also gained a deeper understanding of the challenges that people face when dealing with mental health issues.

What's next for Serenity Now

We plan to continue developing Serenity Now to make it even more effective in helping people manage their mental health. This includes exploring ways to incorporate more advanced natural language processing capabilities, as well as integrating it with other mental health resources and services. We also would like to make this more accessible, by running it on a customized domain so anyone can access from the internet!
