Our Collage Art Therapy Bot is an application that utilizes collage therapy to help users navigate their feelings and give them a better understanding of themselves. Unlike other forms of art therapy, collage therapy is much more inclusive and does not require any artistics skill that may intimidate users from participating. The user interface is split into three sections: the photo library, the chat bot, and the photo collage. The user can scroll through the library and pick the photos that they feel connected to. Then, the chatbot prompts the user to tell it what made them choose the photo. The Collage Art Therapy Bot is designed to be a supplemental tool to the user’s mental health resources and give them more perspective on their internal turmoil. The application brings the benefits of collage therapy in an easy-to-use and accessible format that is available for users whenever they need.
