This Video Game Helps Kids Deal With Mental Health Issues

This Video Game Helps Kids Deal With Mental Health Issues | Understanding CC | Scoop.it

gNats Island is designed to help adolescents overcome negative thoughts, anxiety, and depression. The graphic, character-based game is based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

 

On the "island," players "meet" the negative automatic thoughts in the form of pesky "gNats" that have a "nasty sting." The Black and White gNat makes you think in extremes. The Complete Disaster gNat makes you think everything is a complete disaster, and so on. Almost 750 therapists in the U.S., Ireland and the UK have been trained to use the game with their young patients.
