Welcome to ChatPal

The ChatPal project will develop and trial a chatbot to support and promote mental wellbeing in rural areas. Needs analysis will inform the requirements for the chatbot and content/dialogue scripts for the chatbot will be designed by experts and psychologists. The trial will measure engagement, adoption and efficacy of the chatbot for supporting mental wellbeing in rural areas.
