Inspired by the recent COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on the mental health of millions of people, specifically college students, this thesis focuses on the development of a chatbot to assist those struggling with depression. The bot has three main tasks: identify the user’s mood and respond with the appropriate encouraging words, suggest activities that would improve the user’s mental health state, and provide resources in case of emergencies.
