AMA with Psychologist Silja Litvin on How A Digital Mental Health Game Can Build Your Emotional Intelligence AND Boost Your Mental Resilience.
How many times have you downloaded a 'healthy app' just to abandon it days later?! Too many times if you are anything like me... And like 75% of the population! In my company, we believe that all things in life can be fun, even therapy. So we partnered with Collision Studios, the same game developing company that worked on games like "Game of Thrones", "The Walking Dead", "Barbie", "Scrabble" and many more to design a game that teaches psychological skills:
eQuoo is an Emotional Fitness game that teaches its players the psychological skills they need to succeed in the game AND in real life. What is therapy if not acquiring the skills to be able to deal with emotional and mental stressors?
With eQuoo you can learn many skills vital to building mental resilience, effectively acting preventatively while having fun playing a game. The game is targeted at 18-28-year-olds who are vulnerable to mental health issues due to life-changes as well as being in the age where most mental illnesses manifest. But we have hundreds of players older and younger that are getting a kick out of eQuoo, too.
The game uses psycho-education, positive and systemic psychology, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) wrapped up in a game to ensure the player can learn and practice the new psychological skills in a safe and stimulating environment. Once a skill is learned, the player commences to an interactive game where they use what they just learned to win the level.
Any questions regarding digital mental health, mental health in general or EQ? Shoot, I’m all ears!
Since we just launched 2 weeks ago, we can use all the support we can get, so please do spread the news. And go easy on us: eQuoo will get better over time, just like us <3
