The OUR Generation app is here!
The OUR Generation app was developed by Action Mental Health in collaboration with researchers at Ulster University’s School of Psychology, along with Prof. Maurice Mulvenna of the AI Research Centre in the University’s School of Computing. The app developer is Fluxguide Ausstellungssysteme GmbH, based in Vienna, Austria.
OUR Generation partners fed into the content, and children and young people were involved in co-design by participating in research workshops with Dr. Tara O’Neill and Dr. Colette Ramsey.
The app contains gamified content that will help children and young people improve their emotional resilience and build peace in their communities.
The app contains 5 levels and several challenges within these levels that should help increase knowledge, awareness, and skills in key areas such as:
- Mental Health and Well-being,
- Coping and Problem Solving
- Perspective Taking and
- Intergroup Contact
This FREE app is divided into two age categories, 11 years old and under, and 12 years old and above.
Activities include simple drag-and-drop games as well as videos and links to other sources of help and support.
Players can select from four buddies who guide them through the app – Stripey, Roby, Hoofy or Bulby.
Users earn stars as they complete their journey through the levels and climb the leader board from expert, ambassador, champion to genius.
The app is available to download from the Google Play Store and the Apple Store.
