dc.description.abstractThis paper explores the problem of depression among university students and provides a means by which the students can be linked to a mental health professional, in order to receive guidance. This system is made up of a mobile application and an electrical system. The mobile application includes a chat system that allows the students to contact available counselors, and also, includes a virtual reality interface that allows the user to relax in a virtual environment of choice while listening to an audio of choice. This could be an instrumental, or natural sounds like the wind blowing, rain drops and othersa. The electrical system takes in the user’s temperature and heart rate and sends these data to the cloud database, to be displayed to the counselor in the mobile application as per the counselor’s request.en_US
