Project background.

Pakistan is home to a plethora of low-resource languages. Mental health issues are a pertinent issue people in Pakistan are facing these days, however, due to the stigmas associated with this topic, it remains largely ignored. This project aims to tackle this issue, by building a first of its kind urdu based mental health chatbot. This project will be a vibrant addition to the work promoting the development of low-resource languages, and will also address the issue of mental health issues by building a compassionate NLP-based model that can hold personalized textual conversations with its users.
