Last year, we launched #OlleeApp, a digital friend designed to help children aged 8-11 explore their feelings and support conversations about what's on their mind with a parent.
Since then, Ollee has reached over 300,000 families and provided over 1000 hours of free mental health support.
Over the past year, we've been engaging in ongoing youth consultation with the help of our sister organisation VoiceBox and their youth ambassador programme, to find out what we can do to help children and parents get even more out of Ollee.
The outcome? Ollee version 2, which launched this week as part of #DPW2021.
Ollee V2 has got lots of exciting new features, such as engaging video content, mindfulness activities, and the 'I don't know how I feel' pathway for when children are struggling to identify exactly what emotion they are feeling. It's now available as a native app and can be downloaded for free from both the Apple and Google Play stores.
We've also updated our school and professional packs, which are designed to help teachers and family facing professionals use and share Ollee with the children and parents they work with.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on Ollee. Try it out and be sure to let us know your feedback: http://ow.ly/l4tq50GrYyH
