Help for the Holidays: Support Sessions Series

Apart of Me is an app created to help children and teenagers deal with the journey of grief. This app is very welcoming, calming and very easy to use. The user is taken on a journey through a colorful and lively island where they can explore. They also learn about grief during their exploration and listen to audio stories from other youth who have experienced a loss. This game does not tip toe around the topic of grief. There are breathing exercises that help with relaxation and there are also atmospheric noises which make it a very soothing experience. The app also provides other resources that can be accessed should the youth like more support. The app provides activities that can be done in real life such as journal writing (in addition to other various coping strategies). This app can be very useful to youth, we highly recommend it.
