Abstract:The process is described of designing a concept of a smartphone application to support patients during the COMET-program in mental health care, as well as when having finished the program. Background information on COMET and the after-therapy gap is searched for, whereas the latter can be well supported by literature. Inspiration for the application is drawn from the related work. Interviews have been held with mental health care professionals who have experience with (a derivative of) COMET, resulting in a list of requirements for the application. The after-therapy gap, as discussed in the background information, is also supported by the interviews. The defined requirements are used to create a first prototype of COMET-E. A user test with this prototype has been performed to discover the experiences of the patients and professionals. The latter to test if the needs of the end users would be sufficiently met. The promising results of this user test are used to create a final prototype of COMET-E. Recommendations for future (development and research) work are provided, concluding this thesis.
