HOW TO USE THE CHATBOT:
- Chat with the tool as if you were talking to a trusted friend, family member, or mentor.
- Each time you chat with the tool it remembers what has been talked about during that session, so you can continue a conversation as you would while texting someone.
- I'm not feeling that great right now and I don't know what to do.
- My husband and I seem to argue all of the time, even over little things. How can we make things like they used to be?
- I get really nervous when I am around people and start sweating and shaking. How can I stop this?.
- I don't feel motivated to do anything lately. I literally just lay in bed all day and scroll TikTok. Sometimes I cry but I don't know why.
- I feel really bad about myself most of the time, and the only time I feel better is when I pinch myself really really, really hard.
- What are 5 ways I can calm myself down when I get a little nervous in class or around new people?
