A Mental Health App for Students
I received an email from the mental health charity, Mind, yesterday. It asks if I am a student, or I could spread the word about their new mental-health-for-university-students app. I'm happy to oblige:
And it definitely is *not* your typical ‘mental health app’...
Emoodji is a way for friends at uni to send emoji selfies to each other, while also keeping an eye on each other's wellbeing. You probably know how mental health problems can seemingly start at Uni, sometimes with devastating results (in fact, 1 in 8 students have felt suicidal at university). So Emoodji is quite silly, and secretly slightly serious too.
