Psychological Courses Tests (PsyCT) is an e-learning and
testing website dedicated to mental health. The typical

User research: summary
I conducted user interviews, which I then turned into empathy maps to better understand the target
user and their needs. I discovered that many target users surf online psychology tests and courses
when they seek self help for mental health well-being. However, many psychological courses and
tests websites are overwhelming and confusing to navigate, which frustrated many target users. This
caused a normally help seeking experience to become challenging for them, defeating the purpose
of help.
