From research, to transformed experience


How is mental wellbeing being perceived and treated in Spain?

We reviewed various mental health and well-being web experiences to gain insight on commonly used design patterns, color themes and strategies to help guide design decisions moving forward

Users interviews with 15 people revealed that mental health is often stigmatized, so credibility is crucial to gain trust and habit is important to retention rates.

Top Insights:



Is necessary to sell to businesses and to gain trust with users.



Build rapport so users will engage more with the platform. Users will be more willing if there is rapport with their business.


Habbit Forming

Changing habits is hard, so users need habit forming platform to create new habits.


Destigmatizing Mental Well-being

Proposed Solution
Posible Features


  • Using on-boarding for new users to explain about the plans and progress.
  • Using success metrics to show proof of value.
  • Progress bar
  • New user walkthrough


  • New user sign-up flow uses assessment questioner with conversational and personal copy, friendly tone, one question at a time not to overwhelm first time user.
  • Feedback Form
  • Chat

Habit Forming

  • Using gamification pattern to encourage the users to interact more with the web app, like adding game elements so the users can be challenged to check-in frequently during a week and be rewarded if they do so. Since people like having a clear goal and even more to be rewarded after its achieved, such a challenge would doubtfully pass unnoticed among the users.
  • Badges
  • Locked activities
  • Favorites
Task Flow

With a clearer understanding of existing design patterns and our users, we iterated on user tasks and developed a task flow to help us define the information architecture and needed screens.

The main challenges I faced while designing this experience were:

  • Information architecture - how should I present information in a way that accommodates the 2 different use cases: businesses and users (employees)?
  • Flow - how can I insure sense of credibility and privacy considerations for both businesses and users?

Test & Iterate

With a framework in hand, we broke off into sub-teams to design different parts of the product. From then on, I owned the process of designing the dashboard pages for users.

I created sketches to sample different layout and features combinations. I continued to iterate and refine the wireframes while testing the information architecture and flow with users.

The main challenges I faced while designing this experience were:
Tone and feel: How the copy can convey credibility and welcoming feeling?
Engagement: How should I engage the users to complete the tasks and come back frequently? How can I establish sense of progress?
