Young people use HELPIFY to learn about the connection between mood and behavior and find activities that can help them feel better. The app then helps them plan and debrief these positive activities.
Users can get a sense of progress and their accomplishment as they complete interactive exercises taught by a robotic guide and win rewards in the app.
A chat function allows them to interact with each other anonymously in a protected setting.
Young people can send information kits (education about the condition and how to deal with it) to parents, relatives, friends and/or schools via HELPIFY.
If language is detected in the app indicating possible self-harm, crisis resources and emergency help are displayed to patients.
