Technology in Supporting Mental Wellbeing
Exploring and designing technologies to help people better cope with mental health challenges.
Led by Tian Xu, this project focuses on understanding technology-mediated mental health management strategies and designing everyday-life expressive technologies with/for people with mental health challenges. Specifically, we leverage mixed methods (i.e., machine learning and thematic analysis) to comprehensively identify a taxonomy of technologies and characterize their roles in managing mental health. We are also exploring design opportunities that better support everyday-life expression amongst people facing mental health challenges.
