As I mentioned in my Professional Exploration (Prompt 1), after a long process I came to a decision.
Bellow is my Exploration Process:
I am using prototyping to explore how futuristic health methods and conversational UI in healthcare can help couples with mental health issues.
Reasoning and Motivation?
Mental Health issues are something that people are not usually comfortable to talk about them or sometimes admit that they are suffering from it.
But the past couple of months there has always been something about it on the news. I started searching about Bi-polar disorder and I realized there are not a lot of info for spouse or parents of the person suffering from this condition. and not knowing how people can manage it will result in many many separation and divorces.
So I made it my mission to help people with their problems and provide more information to people. I did some secondary research and found a lot of great resources that can help me with my mission.
