Depression is the leading cause of ill health and disability worldwide. According to the latest estimates from WHO, more than 300 million people are now living with depression, an increase of more than 18% between 2005 and 2015. Keeping in mind the graveness of the spread of depression, we hope to use the widespread use of technology and applications to create a Chat Bot that will help alleviate the mental state of people who are experiencing mental conflict. This Bot aims to use the power of music to help soothe those that require any kind of consolation and help them overcome the negative feelings by nullifying and pacifying them through music. It will provide people with recommendations to songs by analyzing the mood that they are in by analyzing their conversation and performing sentiment analysis on the conversational logs all being done implicitly, Music has been studied for centuries as a powerful tool to calm the mind, and to help bring stability to one’s thought process and is fundamental in allowing people to come out of the negative emotional bubble and out into the positive world.
