People are becoming more alert of mental wellbeing struggles. Individuals are seeking psychotherapist advice to alleviate emotions of sadness, distress, and tension. The development of this smartphone application helps individuals who are limited by physical boundaries. A further contribution of this development is to eliminate the inconvenient constraints of typical face-to-face counselling and psychotherapy, as well as to save money, maximize productivity, and enhance public
consciousness. The results of the study show that the majority of students at the private institutions are conscious of mental wellbeing problems. Students from the private institutions have been selected based on their access to advanced technologies as measured by a survey and an interview. Our study concluded that using the network as a medium for connecting with a psychiatrist remotely can increase community consciousness of psychological health and provide a relatively practical and cost-effective solution.
