Family Separation Support Apps: Mental Health App

Bounce is a dedicated mental health app: a service designed to provide comprehensive support to teens whose parents are divorcing. Because family separation is quite common in this modern era and many children suffer from it, a service like this could be a game changer for how young communities handle family trauma and become healthier adults in the future.

Bounce was created by Sophie Wilson, an industrial design and technology student at Brunel University. The novice designer took Robert Plutchik’s “Wheel of Emotions” as a basis. Teens using this mental health app have the ability to identify their emotions through a schema and “follow a process that allows them to unravel their feelings and take action to resolve them.”
