What it does
Caduceus is an AI-powered mental health discord bot to boost our self-esteem, help us cope up with stress, and recommend really cool activities to relax. It uses Vader Sentiment Analysis tool of the nltk library. The bot can be integrated with any community server to provide self-care support. This can be integrated with Google assistant to provide voice control for the bot. The bot promotes wellness and emotional hygiene through encouraging messages, gyphies, songs, short films, and more. The bot's joy box suggests you random books, songs, memes, jokes, tongue twisters in case you feel like having some me-time! It also gives you relationship advice, in case you feel like getting some. The bot does everything you would expect from a friend. Detecting your sentiments, it cheers you up, gives you compliments, inspires you, has fun with you, makes you fall asleep, gives you advice, and refers you to verified helplines if you have an suicidal thoughts.
How we built it
