Abstract

The Samaritans of Boston is an organization which provides anonymous phone counseling for depressed and suicidal individuals. The organization is currently seeking a way to expand their services using the internet to provide teenagers with a more familiar environment for interaction. This project worked to create a tool to provide online counseling services based on Instant Messaging. The project was generally a success, implementing a solid beta version of the software which includes a server that handles IM distribution and various administrative tasks and a fully featured IM client.
