Abstract

The Samaritans of Boston are an organization which provides anonymoustelephone council for suicidal individuals. The Samaritans organization have been seeking a way to expand their hot-line services from only a telephone hot-line to a service that would feature a computer instant messaging hot-line in addition to the telephone service. The Samariteen IQP project aimed to build the tool that would provide hot-line functionality for instant messaging over the Internet. The project was generally a success, though not all of the desired features were implemented, the basic hot-line technology is functional.
