Abstract

This paper describes the decision-making and motivation behind the development of Mood Sprite – an interactive tool for mental health. Our main aim with this project has been to design a device that compliments and augments the current practices employed by community mental health support groups. To this end, we worked directly with a community support group and a psychologist as co-designers.
