About the Client!
The Client is a Large Govt. funded University in the US. The mental health division specializes in therapies for the LGBTQ community. The application was developed in partnership with their mental health division and is a key component of their ongoing research, helping capture real-world data while providing a support structure for users dealing with mental health problems. The application is currently not open to the public and is being used by volunteers who have signed up for the University’s Mental Health Program.
The solution consists of a Mobile application that has many features designed to help users come together, form communities and support groups. The app also encourages users to fill “Mood” data and make short diary entries periodically. The mood data is then captured and combined with other user data collected through the app into a structured format and transferred to the data lake for future Data Analysis, Machine Learning and Behavior Modelling.
