How could it help me?
When someone you love dies, it can feel like everything has turned upside down. But you’re not alone. Apart of Me is a beautiful world, built to guide you through your darkest moments, where...
In the Apart of Me app, you’ll be transported to a beautiful, peaceful island where you will meet a variety of friendly creatures. You’ll be given a guide to support you along your journey. Your guide will help you to explore, accept, understand and articulate your experience of grief and the wide range of emotions connected to it.
As you progress through the game, you’ll discover your own strengths and wisdom. The island is a safe place where you can begin to process your grief at a pace that suits you, remember the person you have lost and hear from others who know what it is like to lose someone you love.
Apart of Me is designed for age 12+ and has been downloaded more than 80,000 times. Get a taster of the app in this video.
What do people say about it?
“Wonderful, gentle support for working through loss.” – Common Sense Media
“Very calming game. I'm not that far into it yet, but I have anxiety problems, and it's already definitely helping. It makes me feel so Zen, like nothing can bring my mood down. Though I haven't lost a family member due to sickness, I have lost multiple friends and family due to other reasons... and I'm hoping maybe this app can help with that as well.” – Google Play user
“Last year I lost both my grandpa and a classmate... This app is peaceful and deals wonderfully with loss and illness.” – App Store user
“This game is beautiful. It helped me a lot in my time of need. It has calmed my anxiety down tremendously. The rock pool is so useful, I go there when I wake up to start my day nice and when I go to sleep. The stories are my favorite part, I listen to one whenever I can. Thank you for this game, I love it so much.” – Google Play user
